At Driver Solutions we have always been dedicated to preparing truckers for long-term, successful careers on the road. That's why we were eager to partner with St. Christopher Truckers Development and Relief Fund when they told us about the Driven To Be Healthy Challenge.
What is Driven To Be Healthy?
Driven To Be Healthy is a 6-month challenge for ALL current CDL holders with both monthly and overall winners in the 2 categories of:
- Greatest % of Weight Loss
- Most Active Minutes Walking/Running
Simply put, it's a way to encourage and reward truck drivers who are making it a point to live an active, healthier lifestyle. And with truck driver health being a topic of concern across the industry, we want to do whatever we can to get people moving in the right direction.
For the month of September, Driver Solutions decided to donate 2 Fitbit Alta Activity Trackers (pictured here) to the cause. These are being awarded to:
- Brian Keegan, who lost 6.45% of his weight during the month
- Steve Wheeler, who was active for 6,063 minutes during the month
Way to go drivers! This is an awesome start and all of us at Driver Solutions wish you continued success.
Why the Fitbit?
The Fitbit Alta is a fashionable and functional wristband that will help these drivers stay motivated by tracking all-day activity like steps, distance, calories burned and active minutes. When paired with the Fitbit app, it's the perfect tool for staying on track no matter where you might be traveling to that particular day.
We're hoping that by donating these Fitbits we can let not just these truckers know, but all truck drivers throughout the country, that we are behind them supporting the cause of improving truck driver health.
