March 2017 Pedersen Volvo and The Harvey Family

This month Wayne and Lauren Harvey were nearly killed on I70 when high winds pushed over a semi on to their Volvo crushing their car, just missing their two daughters Echo and Estelle. Their vehicle was dragged along I-70 more than 100 yards. Lauren and Wayne say Volvo's sturdiness of their Volvo saved their lives.

Pedersen Volvo, Rickenbaugh Volvo, McDonald Volvo, Penkus Volvo, and Sill Terhar Volvo all pitched in to cover what insurance wouldn't and presented the family with a new Volvo along with new car seats.

"I heard that they had started a GoFundMe page because insurance wasn't covering some things, and I didn't think that was okay, so I wanted to make sure that if insurance wasn't going to make sure that they could continue to stay safe, then I would," said Ryan Burr, Sales Manager at Pedersen Volvo.

"I'm just beyond thankful and beyond grateful that people saw our family and thought we were enough to do something like this," Lauren said. The Harvey's hope Volvo's generosity will inspire others to pay it forward.
Pedersen is honored to have contributed to the continued safety of the Harvey Family.


Pedersen Proudly Supports the 2016 Special Olympics Polar Plunge

The Special Olympics Colorado Polar Plunge presented is a fun and unique way to help support a great cause. You can challenge yourself to jump into the frigid water of Horsetooth Reservoir and get pledges of financial support from your family and friends. "Plungers," as participants are referred to, may take the Plunge as an individual or as a team member. Many Plungers come in costume and stay afterward for the festivities or to cheer others on.


Pedersen is proud to be a part the 2016 Eagles Pot of Gold game.
