All in the name of a good cause

Helping raise awareness for the ones who matter most

Hitachi Construction Machinery Australia Pty Ltd (HCA) provide ongoing support to ‘The Humpty Dumpty Foundation’ by regularly engaging in charity initiatives to raise much needed funds for their cause.

As soon as the donations are collected, vital pieces of medical equipment are purchased and given to selected hospitals local to our branch network across Australia.

Recently, a large donation was made through the sponsorship package for the Balmoral Burn run. HCA had two corporate teams battle it up the 420 metre hill in name of the great cause.

HCA would like to congratulate the Sydney branch on their brilliant effort during the run, crossing the line in 1 min 23 sec. In a field of 22 teams, they came in at 7th place. HCA’s head office team, crossed the finish line just 4 seconds after, achieving 11th place overall.

It was also great to see the group companies come together, with Hitachi Limited Australia also participating in the race day, completing their relay in 2 hours and 3 seconds.

Thank you again to our teams for their energy, courage and burning muscles on the epic uphill run, and for proudly representing HCA in support of The Humpty Dumpty Foundation.

Our donation efforts don’t stop there, with a number of hospital visits recorded and more to come in the coming months.

“It is a privilege for our company to be in a position to support the foundation and involve our employees with hospital visits,” says David Harvey, Managing Director at HCA.

Paul Francis OAM (Founder and Executive Chairman Humpty Dumpty Foundation), said “Hitachi’s support of the Humpty Dumpty Foundation and the local community in which they operate is immeasurable. Their support means children have access to medical equipment that is very much needed by the medical staff and, most of all, it is life-saving. I applaud their contributions as it demonstrates Hitachi’s commitment to the wider community.”
