Mixer Driver Fights Cancer with Help of Pink Truck

Print Print this Article | Send to Colleague

NRMCA Producer member Schuster Concrete is known for its green mixer trucks, but there is one truck that stands out from the rest. That's because it's pink and is driven by Ginger Zirkle who is doing her job and raising awareness about something she has spent the past year fighting. Zirkle, who was diagnosed with breast cancer that is now in remission, was presented with a pink mixer truck last month with the words "Breast Cancer Awareness: Help Fight for the Cure" inscribed on the side. The company spent nearly $10,000 to custom-paint the mixer at a shop in Baltimore, said Robert Doody, plant manager at Schuster Concrete.
