Mercury Racing employees receive safety honor


Brunswick CEO and chairman Dusty McCoy recently presented Mercury Racing employees with the 2010 Chairman's Safety Award at the Mercury Racing facility in Taycheedah, Wis.

The award comes with a $10,000 grant to be donated to charities of the division’s choice.

“Safety is really about being a legacy. Five years from today, you won’t remember what engines you were making, how many you were making or what the weather was like,” McCoy told the employees during the award presentation. “But if someone were seriously hurt, you’ll remember where you were the moment you found out, what the weather was like the day it happened and what you were doing when it happened. It will leave a lasting impression on you.”

The employees elected to donate $7,000 of the grant to St. Baldrick’s Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to fighting childhood cancer.

The donation will be made in the name of 1-year-old Hayden Dins, the son of 11-year Mercury Marine employee David Dins. Hayden was diagnosed with leukemia in August and is undergoing two years of chemotherapy.

The remaining $3,000 was donated to the Wisconsin Lions Club to help fund the organization’s summer camp for children with disabilities in Stevens Point, Wis.
