Dozers & Dirt is brought to you by the former committee of the Reno Big Dig. Join us and get dirty digging-in your shovels to support local children battling cancer. We invite big and little kids alike to operate more than 35 pieces of heavy construction equipment, experience up-close displays of the RAVEN helicopter, a bomb unit, police cars, fire trucks, and more. Lunch – and a day of fun – is included. We are pulling out all the stops to support Northern Nevada children and are excited about this new partnership.

All proceeds benefit the Northern Nevada Children’s Cancer Foundation.

Northern Nevada Children’s Cancer Foundation has been helping local families in our community since 2000 and is the only non-profit in the region solely dedicated to childhood cancer. NNCCF has provided more than $5.6 million in direct financial assistance to local families, all through local funding. NNCCF can only continue to assist local childhood cancer families through the generosity of community partners, like you, and fundraisers like Dozers & Dirt.
