With Seattle leading the nation as the "Crane Capitol of the United States", the American Cancer Society is bringing together the building community with those affected by cancer. This 2018 summer event will celebrate the growth in the city and the incredible innovations that are being discovered in the Puget Sound.
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! By putting those affected by cancer, both large and small, in the driver's seat, we plan to provide a day of fun and fundraising. That is the goal of “Construction vs Cancer of Washington”-a unique fundraising event that provides a festive, fair-like atmosphere for young cancer survivors and their families, sponsors and ticket holders. More than 1,000 little and big construction enthusiasts are expected to attend this unique fundraising event benefiting the American Cancer Society in the mission to eliminate cancer as a major health issue through research, patient services and advocacy.
The American Cancer Society is working to finish the fight against every cancer in every community. We are the largest private, not-for-profit funder of cancer research in the United States, investing more than $10M in Seattle researchers in 2017. Thanks in part to our contributions, more than 1.5 million lives have been saved in the U.S. in the past two decades. Now, that is a reason to celebrate.
For more than a 100 years, The American Cancer Society has been leading the fight to end cancer. With your support, we have helped usher
