Drivers Walking at MATS
For the second year in a row, the MATS Health Awareness Walk for truckers is taking place at the Mid-America Trucking Show.
The 1.5 mile walk takes place Saturday, April 2 at 8 a.m., with all participants meeting at the Kentucky International Convention Center, and can participate in a warm-up before the walk and a cool-down afterward, led by Trucking Trainer Bob Perry. There is no fee for the walk but registration is required. Walkers can choose their own distance, up to 1.5 miles.
The Health Awareness Walk was created to get truckers started on the road to better health. Registered walkers will receive packets with health information and giveaways, while supplies last.
Registration is available at online at www.roadsidemed.com. MATS attendees can also sign up for the walk at the Roadside Medical Clinic and Lab booth at the show (#67028, in the Driver Recruitment and Wellness Center).
