SAN DIEGO, Calif. — There was a lot of stepping going on the ATA Management Conference and Exhibition this past week as Healthy Trucker launched a challenge during the event.
More than 1.1 million steps were tracked through out the four-day conference and America’s Road Team Captains came out on top for walking the most steps.
“This was a great way to promote healthy habits and get the competitive juices flowing while here at MC&E,” said Road Team Captain Eddie Weeks, a driver with AAA Cooper who walked a chart-topping 102,572 steps.
All together, attendees walked a total of 1,136,738 steps, which equates to an incredible 569 miles.
The challenge contained Byrd; incoming ATA Chairman Duane Long, Longistics; Pat Thomas, UPS Inc.; Kevin Burch, Jet Express and Dave Manning, Tennessee Express and comparing them to the steps of America’s Road Team Captains Weeks; Don Logan, FedEx Freight; Jeff Halford, Con-way Freight; Don Biggerstaff, ABF Freight System and Nate Wick, UPS Freight.
Healthy Trucker was so impressed by the competitors that each of the 20 Road Team Captains were given a Fitbit to take the challenge to their companies.
