TBT: Pulling for a Cure

Last year we unveiled our new tow truck Pulling for a Cure, here's a look back.

George’s Customs Towing, a local towing company in Whiteford, MD recently unveiled a new addition to their fleet of trucks.  Pulling for a Cure hit the streets ten days ago at the Dover International Speedway NASCAR event, bringing awareness to breast cancer and all cancers.

Owner George Feilinger and General Manager Alisha Gibbons have been truly astounded by the impact their work vehicle, which was custom built by West End Services is having on the community.  Passers-by approach them and tell their stories, because as we all know – everyone in some way has been touched by cancer.  They met Cathy in a restaurant, once a 12 year breast cancer survivor and now the cancer has returned.  They met Joe whose grand-daughter Rebecca was struck down by childhood cancer.  They met Cheryl, a 10 year cancer survivor who has thrown her passion into cancer awareness through a local group Living Beyond Breast Cancer.

George’s Customs Towing has been swept up and into the Cancer Awareness Movement, their pink tow truck has become a testament of awareness and hope for the cancer community.  George’s Customs Towing has pledged to make a quarterly contribution to a local cancer group or individual in need. For George it’s personal; you will find a dedication on the truck in memory of his Grandmother Mary Glackin.  

 It’s not only about the survival of cancer; it’s also about the ability to thrive once the cancer has been contained.  This sentiment can be visually seen on the hood of the Pulling for a Cure tow truck, which was skillfully designed by Jack of Arts.  Billowing storm clouds ascend into rays of light representing the darkness that cancer brings and the light rays represent hope and healing.
Expect to see Pulling for a Cure at many local community cancer awareness events in Harford County.
