Digging Up A Cure is an unique event designed to raise awareness of the challenges children with genetic disorders face, understand differences, to highlight abilities and educate the community about inclusion/empathy while having a exciting time.
We will change the perspective of raising awareness!
This family centered event will feature a “Texas”-sized sand filled digging area where guest may dig for educational post cards , a sensory center, a book giveaway from various books like " We're All Wonders" and " I Am Human", guest speakers such as Heather Avis, author of "The Lucky Few" and Billy Price, creator of Billy Footwear, along with other exciting prizes.
Don't want to get dirty? The event will also feature many other activities, bouncy houses, food trucks, live music, and games!
Search like a genetic researcher and find awesome prizes!
Raising awareness is not only educating but also providing an opportunity to experience the topic. We do this by providing a space where families alike and diverse can connect, share stories, and exchange resources.
Each card found will have an easy to follow description. Upon finding a card, the guest will be able to take their card to a designated information booth where they can learn more about the condition, genetic research, resources, and how they can support.
Dig deep enough, dig hard enough and ...well a bit of luck... and you may find a prize card. These cards are special finds and have prizes just for you i.e. gift cards, discounts, and actual products from our sponsors ready for pick-up at the event!
