August 12, 2013 -AGC's Build & Serve Committee has partnered with Make-A-Wish San Diego® to help grant wishes to children with life-threatening medical conditions. AGC serves on their Building Council, a network of construction industry leaders committed to making wishes come true by facilitating minor construction-related build projects, and to serve as advisors to determine if a wish is possible.
Monty Wilde from Angus Asphalt, Inc., spearheaded the project to grant four-year old Oliver his wish for a backyard makeover. Oliver is recovering from treatment for Medulloblastoma, so while he was being treated at Rady's Children's Hospital, he would love to ride a trike on their playground track for some relief from his treatment. As a result, he decided a bike track is what he wanted as his wish. John Duke, Concrete Manager from Angus Asphalt, Inc. joined efforts with Dain DeForest from Vulcan Materials, and Chuck Reid from Western Concrete Pumping, Inc., to construct the concrete pathway to grant Oliver his wish. Thanks to these generous companies who volunteered their time, labor, and material, Oliver's wish became a reality!
Special thank you to Mike Alves, Gerdau, and Bryan Weaver, Pam Scholefield, and Joe Kuykendall from Scholefield Construction Law, who volunteered last Friday to help assemble the play set to accompany his backyard makeover wish.
