Groups sponsor Health Awareness Walk at GATS

The entire trucking industry is invited to join in a Health Awareness Walk to be held at the Great American Trucking Show in Dallas, TX. The walk, sponsored by TravelCenters of America and Petro Stopping Centers branded travel centers together with Trucking Solutions Group, will be held on Friday, Aug. 24 at 9 a.m. at the Dallas Convention Center.

The Health Awareness Walk is touted as a fun, non-competitive 1.5-mi. course for anyone interested in getting fit, wanting to stay healthy or looking for tips to enhance their workouts. Participants can choose to walk part or all of the distance.

There is no cost to participate in the fitness event and participants will receive free t-shirts and goodie bags with health information and giveaways.

Homer Hogg, host of Maintenance Matters radio program that airs on Dave Nemo’s show on RoadDog Trucking, Sirius/XM 106 and senior technical maintenance trainer for TA and Petro, will participate in the walk.

Interested participants in the Health Walk should meet in Room D168 of the Dallas Convention Center at 8 a.m. the morning of the walk.

TA and Petro, together with Trucking Solutions Group, are working together to make personal health and fitness easier for all truckers, according to a TA announcement. TravelCenters rolled out its StayFit program in 2010, offering better-for-you restaurant menu options and travel store items, in addition to free fitness centers and mapped walking trails nationwide.
