Werner Enterprises July 12 unveiled its first Race for the Cure truck, raising awareness for breast cancer, in a ceremony at its global headquarters in Omaha, Nebraska.
Daimler Trucks North America President and Chief Executive Officer Roger Nielsen presented the keys to the specially wrapped 2019 Freightliner Cascadia to company founder and Executive Chairman CL Werner. The truck was handed off to Werner team drivers Dorwenda and Sanaye Lewis. Dorwenda is a breast cancer survivor and a member of Werner’s Road Team along with her daughter Sanaye.
“We’re honored to have a truck in our fleet supporting the Susan G. Komen organization’s mission for research, community health, and global outreach,” said President and Chief Executive Officer Derek Leathers. “Dorwenda and Sanaye are exemplary ambassadors for Werner and inspirational women in the transportation industry.”
Dorwenda and Sanaye Lewis joined Werner in 2015 after graduating from Roadmaster Drivers School. They were recognized as Team Drivers of the Month in January 2017.
