Thumbs up Thumbs down - Aug. 31

August 31, 2013

Thumbs up to Schuster Concrete, which spent nearly $10,000 to custom-paint a concrete mixer pink to raise breast cancer awareness. The truck is driven by Ginger Zirkle, who was diagnosed with Stage 1 breast cancer in August 2012 that now is in remission. Zirkle, who was driving back from a delivery when she first saw the mixer, was moved to tears by the gesture.

Thumbs up to Katie Marshall of Keedysville, who road a bicycle from Baltimore to Seattle — covering 4,423 miles in 70 days — to help bring awareness to cancer. The Salisbury University senior took part in 4K for Cancer’s Ride Across America because her own life had been touched by cancer when her grandfather died from the disease.
