Utah Carrier Builds Breast Cancer Awareness Memorial Truck
LEHI, UT…. Trinity X-Press, a Lehi, Utah based flatbed and dry van carrier, has added a Breast Cancer Awareness and Memorial Truck to their 17 truck fleet.
Owners Kelly and Lisa Savage and their employees have all lost loved ones to breast cancer. The Savages decided to build a truck for their fleet that would help build awareness about breast cancer and at the same time, serve as a memorial for those lost (angels amongst us); those fighting (fighters); and the survivors. In addition of the signature pink color and breast cancer pink ribbon, the truck has the names of those touched by breast cancer. Each name is listed 3 times on the truck: 1 time on each side of the sleeper, as well as under the exterior sun visor, so the passengers and drivers can also see the names from inside the cab. The message emblazoned on the truck is, “Supporting The Fighters, Admiring The Survivors, Honoring The Taken And Never, Ever Giving Up.”
The truck is a 2020 Kenworth T680 with a Cummins X15 engine; Easton 18 speed transmission; 355 Rear ends; 255 Wheelbase and a custom 2 tone VIT Diamond Tuck interior. The Kenworth, which was built on July 1, 2019, was ordered through Kenworth Truck Sales of Salt Lake City, Utah with the help of New Truck Sales Manager Cody Woods. The custom paint and striped were done by Marko in the Body Shop of Kenworth Truck Sales of Salt Lake. Lettering was done by Card Signs and their team in Salt Lake City.
The driver of the Kenworth T680 Breast Cancer Awareness and Memorial Truck is Alvy Kerians. The truck holds a special significance to Kerians as his wife Diana is currently in remission from breast cancer and his mother Beth lost her battle with breast cancer. Both women have their names listed on the truck and the Kenworth was christened “Beth” in memory of Alvy Kerians’ mom.
Alvy Kerians and the Kenworth receive lots of attention, both on the CB and at truckstops, to the point that sometimes he can’t get rolling as quickly as he would like – but, it is “all good” to Alvy.
Trinity X-press is planning to have the truck on display at the upcoming Great Salt Lake Kidney Foundation Show in August. The truck is also scheduled to participate in several fundraisers during the month of October 2020, including the Breast Cancer Walk held in Salt Lake City.
