LONDON, Ont. — Leg two of the 2016 Healthy Fleet Challenge is about to get underway July 1.
There will be a fresh leaderboard as the July walking challenge begins. This year, organizers at Healthy Trucker broke the competition up into three segments: May 1-May 31, July 1-July 31 and Sept. 1-Sept. 30.
“In May, we saw Stream Logistics take the main title, and Elgin Motor Freight took the title for teams with over 10 participants. Will they be able to hold these titles, or will a new contender swoop in and take over? We’ll have to wait and see!” organizers said.
Participants can track their steps using wearable technologies or by using their smartphone. Healthy Trucker says many fleets provide or partially reimburse employees for their devices, to encourage participation.
Other fleets are providing prizes for their most active employees. For instance, Harold Marcus of Bothwell, Ont. gives a paid day off to one of its participants, which the company says increased participation. For those who don’t have the ability to track their steps using a step tracker or smartphone, a paper activity calendar is available at HealthyFleet.com.
