NAL Insurance, through its Healthy Trucker program, is issuing a challenge to companies in the trucking industry. It’s calling on fleets and suppliers to assemble teams of 10 to take part in an around-the-world walk during the month of July.
Participants will need an app or a Fitbit device to take part and teams will have to shell out $1,000, which will go towards Make-A-Wish and the Health & Stroke Foundation. Organizer Aaron Lindsay says he wants to see participating teams cover 25,000 miles during the month – effectively circling the Earth.
“We have set a goal to collectively have all industry partners walk around the world in the month of July to promote the importance of better health and wellness in the trucking industry,” said Aaron Lindsay, Healthy Trucker marketing manager. “It’s not a competition and there aren’t any prizes for leading the way but we have set a goal to collectively walk 25,000 miles in the month of July,” said Lindsay. “Together, we can help change the face of trucking one driver at a time.”
