SC&RA Attendees Bring Attention to Crane Safety

Buckner HeavyLift Sponsors 12th Annual CCO Fun Run 

June 2011 - As the April sun rose over the world-famous San Diego resort Hotel del Coronado, host of the Specialized Carriers & Rigging Association (SC&RA) Annual Conference, more than 50 participants gathered for the annual CCO 5K Fun Run/Walk. This year marked the twelfth straight year that Buckner HeavyLift Cranes, Graham, NC, sponsored the benefit event for the National Commission for the Certification of Crane Operators (NCCCO).


Participants in NCCCO's Fun Run at the SC&RA Annual Conference begin the 5K course along the beach at Hotel del Coronado. Glen Tellock, Chairman, President, and CEO of The Manitowoc Co.

A regular part of the SC&RA Annual Conference, this year's Fun Run—titled “Dart at the Del”—brought out a variety of runners, including those who had participated before and new ones. . Buckner President Doug Williams generously provided all participants with “Dart at the Del” T-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 Hyatt Regency Lost Pines Hotel in Austin, Texas.
