      Construction Vs Cancer Coachella Valley Big Dig

      Pediatric cancer survivors will enjoy the thrill of “Sitting in the Driver’s Seat” and will be our VIP guests for the day!

      Showing the softer side of construction, the local construction industry has forged a partnership with the American Cancer Society in its mission to find a cure for cancer. Imagine a young child affected by cancer being given the opportunity to sit in and help operate a piece of equipment such as a backhoe, dozer, or excavator! That is the goal of “Construction vs. Cancer Coachella Valley – The Big Dig” – a unique fundraising event that provides kids and those “kids-at-heart” the opportunity to operate various construction equipment, play games, and share in the festivities.

      FREE to the PUBLIC, this event has been designed to offer kids and families a day of fun and entertainment in a festive, fair-like atmosphere. The look on a kid’s face as he or she operates an excavator is PRICELESS! We know children diagnosed with cancer undergo so many doctor visits, hospital appointments, tests, and treatment. To take control of a massive piece of equipment and get back in the Driver’s Seat can be therapeutic for not only the child, but the family who loves them.

      Cost: Free - Attendance is free and pre-registration is encouraged
