Food Truckin' for Josh Cares

(FOX19) -

A collection of food trucks will be gathered in Fountain Square on June 18 to benefit seriously ill children at Cincinnati Children's Hospital.

Proceeds from the event go to the Josh Cares Child Life Program at Children's which is dedicated to ensuring that no seriously ill child suffers through a lengthy hospitalization alone.

The 12 food trucks will gather in Fountain Square from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Fox 19's own Frank Marzullo is the Master of Ceremonies for the event.

The Josh Cares organization was started in honor of a ten-year-old boy named Josh Helfrich who passed away after suffering a brain injury from a bicycle accident.

Although his parents were by his side during his entire stay, they noticed that many children were left alone. That is when they decided to start the organization for families who are unable to stay at the hospital with their sick child for a long period of time.
