Year 11 of our reality-show-on-the-radio is…

The myTalk 107.1 hosts have run a restaurant, played rock music, performed in a musical, gone to boot camp and more!
This year they will learn to operate heavy equipment -- bulldozers, excavators, and front loaders -- to raise money for four great charities.

Tune in November 3rd-5th for the action and see us bring the “dirty” back to Project Down & Dirty!

Project Down & Dirty Construction at Extreme Sandbox Minnesota.

We think you’ll dig it!

Together, we create life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses. Since 1982, Make-A-Wish Minnesota has granted more than 6,000 wishes to create hope, strength and joy for children with critical illnesses, their families and entire communities. Research shows that a wish can help give kids the strength to fight against and even overcome a critical illness. While Make-A-Wish is a national organization, the Minnesota chapter is “small but mighty” with a staff of 20 and a core of 460 dedicated volunteers. It relies solely on charitable giving to grant wishes for Minnesota children with critical illnesses statewide.
