imagesMATS is Here!!

Join the Trucking Solutions Group for our annual Health Awareness walk at MATS 2014.

We’re moving the walk this year down to the Papa John’s parking lot. We’ll be walking Thursday evening after the show closes.

Our friends and sponsor, TA/Petro are sponsoring the lot this year and are offering a shower area. We’ll meet at 6:30 p.m. at that shower area and take a leisurely stroll over to Churchill Downs Raceway and back. Most people don’t realize that the home of the Kentucky Derby is so close to the Papa John’s lot.

Join us and show your support. Together we’ll improve trucker health one driver at a time.

Keep in mind that in addition to trucking, they also oversee rail, marine and aviation segments of transportation as well.
