HOLLAND, Mich., March 14, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Truck drivers from across the United States will be traveling to the Holland service center in Atlanta, Ga., on Saturday, March 18, to not only show their commitment to highway safety and driving skills–but to raise awareness for the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation (PBTF) Georgia Chapter at the annual Safety Drive for a Cure.
“This event showcases how serious the trucking industry is about safety,” said Holland President Scott Ware. “It helps get more drivers involved in state truck driving competitions, gives veteran drivers a way to fine tune their safety skills, and aids the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation. Holland is honored to host the annual Safety Drive for a Cure.”
The event originally began in 1999 in North Carolina as an inner-company event between North Carolina and the border states as the “Battle of the Borders.” It was developed as a way for drivers to learn from the “best of the best” in the profession.
This year’s “Safety Drive for a Cure” features a world-class course and over twenty of the American Trucking Associations (ATA)’s elite Road Team Captains (including Jeff Payne, Reddaway professional driver; and Holland professional drivers Russell Simpson and Herschel Evans), as well as exhibiting both ATA’s image trucks onsite.
