A group of Central Lakes College students and staff recently pitched in at an event that raised $27,000 for the Children's Hospital and Clinics of Minnesota.

The third annual Day of the Dozers took place Saturday in Elk River, and 13 of CLC's heavy equipment operations and maintenance student club members, four staff and faculty, and a few CLC graduates, were on hand to help out.

The CLC representatives helped children line up and get ready to ride on the machines. They also operated a trailer of heavy equipment simulators for visitors to test out. The money raised surpassed the goal of $20,000.

"It made me proud to see our students interacting with both parents and children," said Chris Hadfield, dean of career and technical education and the Staples campus. "They did a fantastic job and I think truly enjoyed being part of the event."
