Too bad mainstream media didn't punch into an event held at the Mid-America Trucking Show Friday morning. It would have a gone a long way toward destroying the stereotypical image of truckers they continue to perpetuate in every trucking related story they write.
I'm talking about the MATS Health Awareness Walk sponsored by the Trucking Solutions Group. The event celebrated its third year as the first of its kind fitness event for the trucking industry.
Everyone met in the West Wing of the Kentucky Fair and Exposition Center for some refreshments and then took off at 9 a.m. for their 1.5-mile walk.
The walk was co-sponsored by TA-Petro with special thanks to the Mid-America Trucking Show management.
