Attendees to Kadlec Foundation’s ninth annual Kidz Dig Rigz event on May 18 were welcomed to Columbia Park with warm weather, a cause to support and a huge variety of equipment from a helicopter and emergency vehicles to heavy construction equipment. The event drew in over 4,000 members of the community to climb on the equipment and enjoy the entertainment and food – all in support of raising funds for pediatric services at Kadlec.
Kidz Dig Rigz, a fundraising event of Kadlec Foundation and presenting sponsor Numerica Credit Union, has continued to receive generous community participation around this impactful event including grossing over $80,000 from sponsorships and attendance in 2019.
“Kidz Dig Rigz is a big event to plan and coordinate and, year after year, we continue to be humbled by the generous support from our numerous sponsors and community attendees as we raise funds for pediatric services at Kadlec,” said Rebecca Thornton, Manager for Kadlec Foundation. “We are grateful to everyone who donated time, money and energy to make this event a success for the benefit of our smallest and most vulnerable patients.”
