LOCAL BUSINESS DOING THEIR PART TO FIGHT BREAST CANCEROct 11, 2016 04:01PM ● By Bryan Scott
Salt Lake City, UT – Scary fact, about 1 out of 8 women born today in the United States will get breast cancer at some point-- we want to do our part to change this. In honor of breast cancer awareness month Burbidge Concrete Pumping is unveiling its newest truck to the fleet—a 58-meter concrete pump with a florescent pink boom that is catching everyone’s attention. This pump is special not only because of its unusual looks but it will be doing exactly what is proudly written along the side, “Working Towards A Cure”. A percentage of all profits from this pink pump will be donated directly to Huntsman Cancer Institute to help find a cure for breast cancer.
The pink pump when fully extended reaches almost 200 vertical feet in the air and wears breast cancer pink for all to see. Dave Burbidge, the co-owner of Burbidge Concrete Pumping said, “With 55 trucks in operation today throughout Utah, thousands of people are seeing the booms extended in the air. This gives us a unique opportunity to raise awareness and to do our part to fight breast cancer.”
Burbidge Concrete Pumping is a third-generation, family-owned business that was devastated when the founder, Eugene Burbidge, was tragically taken by cancer 26 years ago. To celebrate his legacy and to support the dozens of employees who have been affected or are currently being affected by this terrible disease, Burbidge Concrete Pumping is excited to raise awareness and donate towards finding a cure.
