Cement Mixer's New Paint Job Makes Bold Statement


With just a single canister, paint techs at Turner's Body Shop paint a bold statement on something concrete.

Eleven cement trucks from Kearney Concrete will be getting a pink stripe and a ribbon.

It promotes Concrete Cares, an upcoming fundraiser aimed to spread breast cancer awareness.

Technicians say it's a lot of work, but the finished project makes it all worth it.

"Most people don't really notice concrete or cement trucks driving down the street, but lately since there've been some on the road with the pink stripes, they've been noticed and people have been seeing them, coming in saying they look good," said paint technician Troy Patterson. "And then they hear what they're for and it all kind of comes together. Everybody seems to be all on board for it, seems to be a little bit more noticeable now and that's pretty cool."

The Concrete Cares Cancer Awareness event will take place on Sunday, Sept. 29 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Archway Monument.
