Get dirty to help fight pediatric cancer
Due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, the American Cancer Society has created a virtual event called The Little Dig.
Kids compete to fundraise by playing in the dirt wherever they and their parents choose. Participants are then encouraged to post fun pictures or videos on The Little Dig DC event dashboard showing their kids playing in the dirt and invite their friends and family to vote by donating.
Kids who raise $250 or more will be mailed The Little Dig kit, which includes a shovel and The Little Dig t-shirt.
Five prizes will be awarded in the following categories:
Most money raised, most individual donations, most actively involved, most creative dig and most dirty.
Winners will be announced Oct. 1.
Along with a prize, winners will be presented with a certificate at The Big Dig 2021 event, which is scheduled for Sept. 18, 2021 at the
Ashbrook Corporate Center in Virginia The Big Dig fundraiser, which would have taken place in Ashburn, Virginia, to benefit pediatric cancer research and the Inova Children’s Hospital Child Life Program, is a collaborative event between the American Cancer Society and the construction industry, providing children and event sponsors the exciting opportunity to operate heavy equipment, including real excavators, bulldozers, front loaders, dump trucks and more with the assistance of a professional.
The Big Dig of the National Capital Area in 2021 expects to draw more 1,000 participants. Proceeds for The Little Dig and The Big Dig benefit the American Cancer Society’s pediatric cancer research and Inova Children’s Hospital Child Life Program.
