Teck and Finning are bulldozing breast cancer
Teck and Finning have partnered up to raise awareness for breast cancer and its impact on the local community with a rebuilt, bright pink Caterpillar D10T bulldozer.
Clayton Podrasky, Elkview's superintendent of operations, said the idea was raised by a crew member. Podrasky was happy to support the initiative to increase awareness and conversation around this important issue.
“This is an issue that has touched me and others in the community very deeply and I am very proud of the employees for raising it, and the operation and company for supporting this,” he said.
Finning donated the pink facelift for Teck's bulldozer, which was in their shop for reconditioning. On May 26, the dozer was transported to Teck's Elkview Operations (EVO) to return to work.
“This was a great project that brought a lot of excitement to our branch,” commented Tom Tobin, Finning's Sparwood branch manager. “I am sure it will do the same when it goes to work at EVO. I really want to thank the Teck team at EVO for letting us be part of such a meaningful project.”
