The Big Dig gives local Phoenix children, including those with cancer, the opportunity to attend and operate heavy machinery, including back-hoes, diggers, excavators and much more.
Sponsors and ticketholders will be “hard hats” for the day operating heavy construction equipment in the beautiful Arizona desert at The Eastmark Great Park. More than 1200 big and little construction wanna-be’s are expected to attend this unique fundraiser in support of pediatric cancer research!
This year, cancers youngest patients, survivors, their families, and the community came out to Eastmark Great Park in Mesa to operate heavy machinery at the American Cancer Society's second annual Big Dig. For just a few hours, they got to be kids and forget about cancer. It was an inspiring event that hosted over 1,400 people and raised over $175,000 for the American Cancer Society!
We hope to see you all back next year!
