Worldwide Day of Play; A Hands-on Introduction to the Trucking Industry


On Saturday, September 27th, CIT Group, Inc. participated in the Worldwide Day of Play event hosted by the Children’s Discovery Museum in Normal, IL. The event took place in Uptown Normal and was a street-fest full of free activities for children, including 60 booths, stage activities, a touch-a-truck experience, and a bike rodeo.

CIT Peru, IL provided a 2015 Mack CXU613 for the ‘Touch-A-Truck’ experience. “The kids loved playing in the truck and being able to honk the horn all by themselves,” stated Taylor Wendt, CIT Representative. She also expressed how surprised she was by the number of children who already had a passion for the trucking industry saying, “Several kids even knew the model of the Mack truck we provided!”

The Worldwide Day of Play event was a fun way for CIT to engage with the community and offer a hands-on introduction to the trucking industry. The event attracted nearly 3000 attendees, and 500 CIT giveaways were placed into the hands of excited, happy, and full-of-energy children to enjoy.
