Leonard's Express Joins the Fight Against Breast Cancer

Happy Monday, Trucking Nation! As you know, October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Last Monday, we here at ExpressTruckTax told you about United Materials, a concrete company in North Tonawanda, NY, that has painted one of its concrete trucks pink in order to raise awareness for breast cancer research. They also raised money towards helping survivors of breast cancer and finding a cure for the deadly illness.

The Power of The Trucking Nation

Proudly, United Materials is by no means the only member of the Trucking Nation to dedicate at least one truck to the fight against breast cancer. Leonard’s Express, a transportation provider in Farmington, NY, has adorned not one but three of its rigs with pinks ribbons, the universal symbol for breast cancer awareness. Leonard’s Express has also pledged to donate one penny for each mile these trucks drive, and all three trucks will average at least 100,000 plus miles each year.

Leonard’s Express has partnered with the Breast Cancer Coalition of Rochester to educate, advocate, and help those affected by breast cancer in Western and Central New York State. President of Leonard’s Express, Ken Johnson, explains his company’s decision to partner with the coalition: “Having witnessed the great work that the Breast Cancer Coalition of Rochester does it was an easy decision to support this fine organization, while at the same time raising awareness of the terrible disease that breast cancer is.”

Fighting for a Cure

1 in 8 women are diagnosed with breast cancer during their lives.And while it is the second leading cause of death among women, it also affects men. Finding a cure for this terrible disease is a huge priority here at ExpressTruckTax. We are proud to be able to feature stories about you members of the Trucking Nation who have gone all in to support efforts in fighting breast cancer. Seeing your pink rigs and trucks decorated with pink Breast Cancer Awareness ribbons on the road does our hearts good. It reaffirms what we already know: The Trucking Nation is the best!

ExpressTruckTax is #TruckingForACure

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, as most of you know. Since 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer at some point in their lives, there are few of us who aren’t touched and affected by this terrible disease.

Personally, I lost a high school friend to breast cancer this October 4th. Most of us here at ExpressTruckTax have been directly affected by losses from breast cancer, and it’s no wonder because breast cancer is the 2nd leading cause of death among women. Luckily, awareness and support have been building in recent years to find a cure.

We here at ExpressTruckTax are committed to helping find a cure for breast cancer. Although more and more activities and efforts on the part of finding a cure are taking place around the calendar year, October is the time to focus intensely on raising awareness, as well as funds, towards finding that cure.

United Materials, a concrete company in North Tonawanda, New York, is one member of the Trucking Nation who has stepped up and is making a difference in the fight. Not only has the company committed to raise money to fund research and help those affected, it’s also increased awareness by getting its pink concrete truck out on the road for everyone to see. Remember, pink is the adopted color for breast cancer awareness. Since the pink ribbon is the easily recognizable symbol of the fight for a cure, the pink United Materials concrete truck has a prominent pink ribbon on its side.

With the slogan “Our Commitment to the Cure is Concrete,” United Materials demonstrates its dedication to help find a cure and aid those families affected by breast cancer. The Western New York concrete company states that its pink concrete truck’s purpose is “to honor all survivors of breast cancer throughout the Niagara Region.”

Over 500 man hours were donated last year by United Materials’ more than 100 employees towards fundraising and awareness events in Western New York. Their pink concrete truck and employees have shown up to throw support behind their “Commitment to the Cure.”

This pink truck is just one example of how the hard-working members of the Trucking Nation can and are making a difference. There are countless pink trucks out on the roads, and their numbers are increasing every day. ExpressTruckTax is grateful for all your contributions and efforts to raise awareness of the need to find a cure for breast cancer. Keep it up, Trucking Nation, by joining the ExpressTruckTax team in raising awareness via social media!
