Power Motive Corporation (PMC), a leading construction equipment dealer based in Denver with branches across Colorado and SE Wyoming, really dug its participation in the Big Dig Event sponsored by the American Cancer Society.
Held at the Ritchie Bros. facility in Longmont, the purpose of the first ever Big Dig in the State of Colorado was to give Northern Colorado children, including cancer patients and survivors, the opportunity to get close to and operate heavy machinery. On display were excavators (including mini-excavators the children could actually operate), wheel loaders, cement mixers, work trucks, boom lifts and even a Flight-for-Life helicopter. PMC transported and centrally positioned a large Komatsu D155 bulldozer, “very cool” as described by one of the youngsters climbing in and around it, to help populate an impressive spread of equipment.
“What a great day and a great cause” stated Paul Desombre, PMC’s General Sales Manager who spent the day onsite to assist kids on and off the machine. “We coveted the opportunity to help raise funds to better research and prevent childhood cancer,” continued Desombre. “I know I speak on behalf of all PMC employees and families in saying it’s a privilege to be here.”
