May 2015—For the 16th year in a row, Buckner HeavyLift Cranes (Graham, NC) sponsored the annual NCCCO Fun Run at the Specialized Carriers & Rigging Association (SC&RA) Annual Conference on April 15, 2015, in Carlsbad, California. This year’s event commemorated NCCCO’s 20th anniversary and was therefore called the “NCCCO 20th Anniversary Recognition Run/Walk.”
Beginning at daybreak in perfect Southern California weather, 64 participants ran and/or walked a 5K circuit around the beautiful La Costa Resort Champions golf course. The event once again raised funds to support NCCCO programs and initiatives, and participants received tee shirts and stickers to put on their SC&RA name badges to show their support of NCCCO’s efforts promoting crane safety.
Buckner President Doug Williams generously provided commemorative tee shirts, beverages, and snacks. “Buckner is pleased to put on this fun annual event to support NCCCO’s efforts to improve crane safety,” Williams said.
Participants are already looking forward to next year’s event, which will be held at the Hilton Orlando Bonnet Creek, Orlando, FL.
