I just had the opportunity to meet Duane LeMere, the Kids Wish Network On Tour truck driver from Megatrux, when he pulled into to the parking lot to pick up the toys to deliver for On Tour. What a great guy!
Duane has been working with Megatrux for a total of eight years and said that this is the first time he’s been a part of something like On Tour. While this is a new experience for him, I got the impression that this is something Duane will truly enjoy doing, and something he will gladly take part in again if he can!
Duane said that he and his truck have been getting a lot of attention on the drive from California to Florida. In case you forgot, here’s a picture of the Kids Wish Network On Tour truck:
Apparently, the truck has been causing quite a stir across the country. Duane said he has been asked by several people to pull over or get in a good position so passers-by can take a snapshot of the truck. How awesome is that?
I took a few minutes to ask Duane some questions about the trip and the event, and he had some great things to say.
“I think it’s [Kids Wish On Tour] a fantastic program. I’m looking forward to bringing it [all the toys and gifts for the kids] all in and seeing all the smiles,” he said. “I get to stay for the event and see it all happen.”
Although Duane and his truck have been getting a lot of attention on the trip, Duane truly understands what Kids Wish is all about and why we are having this event.
“It’s all for the kids,” he said.
So here is a big thanks to Duane, Megatrux and all the sponsors, donors, volunteers and supporters who have gotten Kids Wish this far in our endeavor. We could not have done it without you!
