“Drivers, Start Your Walking Shoes!”
The Trucking Solutions Group Health Awareness Walk Promotes a Healthier Driver
LOUISVILLE, KY – The entire trucking industry is invited to join their fellow drivers, along with The Trucking Solutions Group and Bob Perry, “The Trucker Trainer”, for the 61+ Health Awareness Walk at 8 a.m. Saturday, April 2, 2011 at the Mid-America Trucking Show in Louisville, KY. The 61+ Health Awareness Walk is a fun, non-competitive 1.5 mile course for anyone in the trucking industry who is thinking about getting fit, wanting to stay healthy or looking for tips to enhance their workouts.
The MATS Health Awareness Walk is celebrating its second year as the first of its kind fitness event for the trucking industry. There is no cost, but registration is required. Registrants will receive walk packets, while supplies last, with health information and giveaways. Walkers will meet in the West Wing Entrance of the Kentucky International Convention Center where they can also attend a warm-up and a cool-down with Bob Perry, the “Trucker Trainer.” In order to accommodate all walkers, participants can choose the distance of their choice up to 1.5 miles.
“This is a plea from driver to driver to get outside of your truck and work towards a healthier lifestyle,” said Linda Caffee, professional driver and chairman of the Trucking Solutions Group Driver Health Council. “We’re all in this together! This walk provides everyone with the opportunity to receive support from your fellow drivers and get on the road to better health.”
Registration is available online at www.truckingsolutionsgroup.org or www.roadsidemed.com or March 31- April 1 at the Roadside Medical Clinic + Lab, Booth #67028 in the Driver Recruitment & Wellness Center during the Mid America Trucking Show.
The walk is sponsored by the Trucking Solutions Group and Roadside Medical Clinic + Lab with special thanks to the Mid-America Trucking Show. The Trucking Solutions Group, along with its partner Roadside Medical Clinic + Lab are innovators in the trucking industry, working towards making personal health and fitness a bigger concern for all truckers.
“Being drivers ourselves, the Trucking Solutions Group realizes how hard it is to begin an exercise program,” Caffee said. “The hardest step of any exercise program is the first. Whether you are a marathon runner or someone who wants to take that first step we invite you to join us. Together we can become healthier, one driver at a time.”
