Alpine Buick GMC has donated a GMC Yukon XL to Children’s Hospital Colorado to transport the hospital’s EMS Outreach Team to conferences and other events to educate medical professionals throughout its seven-state region.
Coined “Biggie,” Alpine’s gift replaces an older vehicle that drove thousands of miles to enable the EMS Outreach Team to teach more than 3,000 professionals and deliver some 120 presentations per year.
Valued at more than $60,000, the Yukon XL is just one element of Alpine Buick GMC’s ongoing sponsorship of Children’s Colorado. Alpine will also be giving away a trip for four to Orlando/Universal Studios to community members who spot “Biggie” around town or post on social media about Biggie using #BIGGIE. The Yukon is easy to spot – painted in Children’s Colorado’s signature blue and branded with both organizations’ logos. For more information, visit Facebook/AlpineBuickGMC.
“Alpine has been a loyal partner to Children’s Colorado for more than 10 years and raised millions to support our mission,” said Jason Kotas, EMS Outreach Manager at Children’s Colorado. “Because of the company’s generosity, our outreach team will reach a greater number of professionals who prevent injury and save lives.”
The EMS Outreach team gives medical professionals working in outlying areas an opportunity to learn the newest techniques in pediatric care from nationally renowned specialists. The team also delivers powerful injury prevention information to the community through neighborhood safety fairs and fire and injury prevention events.
As part of the #BIGGIE Campaign, Biggie will be traveling during its off hours to Denver Broncos training camp and will be transporting ALICE 105.9's Live@5 Artists. On Aug. 11 and 12, Elitch Gardens will also host #BIGGIE Day. Admission will be $29.99 for customers that use the promo code BIGGIE when purchasing tickets online. For each ticket purchased, Elitch Gardens will donate $5 to Children’s Colorado.
“We believe in giving back to the community, especially children and families,” said Alpine co-owner Ivette Dominguez. “We’re happy to make it easier for Children’s Colorado to keep kids safe through the education and outreach provided by its EMS Outreach Team.”
