New Holland Agriculture purchased the Survivor in November of 2016. It resulted in a $32,000 donation to the Ann B Barshinger Cancer Institute at Lancaster General Hospital.
This year starts a new journey for the Survivor Tractor with a yearlong campaign of fundraising throughout 2017. To help fight against cancer, New Holland and CNH Industrial will match contributions up to $100,000 to donate to the American Cancer Society.
New Holland Agriculture is encouraging people to go out to Williams Tractor 2501 N Shiloh Drive Fayetteville, Arkansas and take their picture next to the Survivor Tractor and share their stories of survival on social media by using #SurvivorTractor or by visiting Survivortractor.com.
