WHAT IS CONSTRUCTION VS. CANCER?
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.
