Superior Propane's "Pink Truck" program in support of the Canadian
Breast Cancer Foundation added another $10,933 to its total
contributions this past weekend. "Pinky One" - one of five pink
Superior Propane delivery trucks across Canada, and one of two such
trucks the company operates in Ontario - participated in the annual
Trucking for a Cure Convoy from Dorchester to Woodstock. Pinky One's
contribution to the cause was large enough to earn her the right to
lead the convoy of 53 trucks at this year's event. 
James Pinder, Superior's Fleet Manager for Ontario, was a driving
force behind the company's Trucking for a Cure participation 
this
year and is overwhelmed by the response from Superior Propane's staff
and suppliers. "I set our original fundraising goal at $3,550.00, but
I ended up increasing it four times because we kept exceeding it," he
explained. "What's really tremendous is how such a wide range of our
staff and suppliers have participated. As of today, we've raised
$10,933.00 but will accept donations until the end of October.
Twenty-five hundred of that came as a corporate contribution from
Superior Propane, but the rest of it was individuals and suppliers."  
Introduced in 2009, "Pinky One" was the first vehicle of its kind in
the Canadian propane industry. Since then, she has travelled some
175,000 kilometers and pumped over 11 million liters - raising more
than $33,000 for breast cancer research and patient programming to
date.  
Superior Propane's commitment to improving lives and the communities
in which its customers and employees reside resulted in expansion of
the Pink Truck fleet. Today, Superior operates two Pink Trucks in
Ontario, one in British Columbia, one in Alberta and one in Atlantic
Canada. Across Canada last year, Superior's Pink Trucks delivered
nearly 18 million litres of propane. In addition to raising awareness
and funds at events like Trucking for a Cure, the company contributes
one-third of a cent for each litre of propane delivered by their Pink
Truck program. In 2011, as a result of Pink Truc
k deliveries Superior
Propane contributed nearly $54,000 to support the breast cancer
research and patient programming provided by the Canadian Breast
Cancer Foundation.
