TORONTO, Ont. — Healthy Trucker (a division of NAL Insurance) in partnership with Truck News, a Transportation Media publication, has announced they will be holding a Healthy Fleet Challenge for the month of July.
“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.
“Walking is something everyone can participate in and is that first critically important step towards a healthier lifestyle,” added Lou Smyrlis, publisher and editorial director of Transportation Media. “We are proud to be part of this initiative and we’re looking forward to having a great deal of fun in July.”
All fleets and allied trades are invited to participate in this event to promote the importance of getting more active. The entry fee for each team is a $1,000 donation with proceeds going to the Heart and Stroke Foundation and Make-a-Wish Canada.
Each team can register up to 10 individuals (O/Os, drivers or employees) to participate in this event. To participate, team members will need to download this app to their iPhone or Android device, or purchase a Fitbit device, which will help track the steps participants take each day.
Carriers and allied trades members that take part can upload their logo and team information to an online leader board to show their support of the event and to see how they’re doing compared to other companies.
“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.”
