The event gives families across the valley the chance to come together in support of childhood cancer patients in Nevada and nationwide, and it gives Junior Operator attendees an exclusive opportunity to get in the driver’s seat and operate heavy machinery, including backhoes, diggers, and excavators (with supervision).

Kids can also climb the popular Scaffolding Lookout Tower, dig in the Giant Sandbox, watch live local entertainment on the Main Stage, and help construct a cure for cancer by lending a hand at the memorable Wall of Hope art project.

Current Construction vs Cancer 2022 event sponsors and volunteers have already raised over $153,000 toward their goal to fight childhood cancer and include dedicated companies Southern Nevada Home Builders Association, NDL Group Inc., Vermeer Mountainwest, CSI Scaffolding, and many more. Information about sponsorship opportunities, volunteerism, and other related needs can be found at

All funds raised for the event support the American Cancer Society pediatric research and our mission to save lives, celebrate lives, and lead the fight for a world without childhood cancer through funding and conducting research, sharing expert information, supporting patients, and spreading the word about prevention.

Because cancer is the leading disease-related cause of death for ages 1-19, the Society currently funds 46 childhood cancer research grants totaling $27 million (as of March 1, 2022), with funds raised each year at events like Construction vs Cancer.

The 2021 Construction vs. Cancer event raised more than $195,000 to fight childhood cancer.
