Employees Walking for a Cause


On 06-04-16 Alycia Cabral and Kelly Wilcoxon walked in the 5K raising money for Brain cancer awareness. Alycia and her family have a very personal rea-son for making this walk every year. Alycia’s grandfather (Wayne) has been fighting stage 4 brain tumor since 2010. At that time doctors told him 2 years at the most… Well it has been 6 years. Go Grandpa Wayne! All Funds raised allow the National Brain Tumor Society to research and find new and better treatments for Brain Cancer.

On 06-11-16 Carrie Bybee, Sue Engelstad & Kelly Wilcoxon walked a 5K for Jodi’s race for Ovarian Cancer awareness. This race raised over $124,000.00 dollars this year for Ovarian Cancer awareness. This race is a day to celebrate those who are bravely fighting this disease, and to pay tribute to those who have lost their fight. Like Jodi Brammeier who started this race in 2010 and in August of that same year lost her courageous battle with ovarian cancer.

Heat Illness Prevention


According to OSHA, in 2014 2,630 workers suffered from a heat related illness. Here are some important reminders for working in the hot Colorado sun.

1. Drink water every 15 minutes, even if you are not thirsty. Avoid ice in water as it causes less hydration absorption in the body .
2. Rest in the shade to cool down.
3. Wear a hat and light-colored clothing. Wear sun screen, especially on your face and neck.
4. Learn the signs of heat illness and what to do in an emergency.
5. Keep an eye on fellow workers.
6. “Easy does it” on your first days of work in the heat. You need to get used to it.
7. Drink an electrolyte drink to replenish electrolytes lost in sweat.

Working in full sunlight can increase heat index values by 15 degrees Fahrenheit. Keep this in mind and plan additional precautions for working in these conditions.
