Dozers & Dirt is brought to you by the former committee of the Reno Big Dig. This year join us, and get dirty digging-in your shovels to support local children battling cancer. We invite big and little kids alike to operate over 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 for 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 region’s only non-profit solely dedicated to serving children diagnosed with cancer. NNCCF has provided more than $4.6 million in direct financial assistance, all through locally raised funding. They can only continue to assist our local childhood cancer families through the generosity of our community partners, like you and fundraisers like Dozers & Dirt.
