Obese drivers can earn cash while getting healthy
“Healthy Trucking Pays” is the slogan of the Healthy Trucking Association of America (HTAA) who just announced that 10, 000 obese drivers can earn $800 in cash for their participation in HTAA’s new program.
The HTAA will offer a free doctor supervised weight loss program and pay drivers to boot. It really is “an unprecedented act of good will and caring for our nation’s professional truck drivers.”
“We want to prove our slogan that ‘Healthy Trucking PAYS,’” says Bill Gordon, HTAA Executive Director. “We know that professional drivers are undergoing a great deal of financial pressure right now. So much so, it is hard for drivers to even think about losing weight or getting fit. Plus, most of the companies and organizations out there offering weight loss programs to drivers are actually trying to charge drivers a monthly fee for the programs and in these tough economic times a lot of drivers who desperately need it just can’t afford it. That’s where the HTAA is different – we understand the needs of drivers and that’s why we’ve secured $20,000,000 in funding to help 10,000 obese drivers get healthy and get paid at the same time.”
The HTAA will provide full details of this new program at it’s upcoming HTAA Healthy Trucking Summit in Atlanta, Georgia (April 24-26, 2012). As more and more fleets are jumping onto the healthy drivers band wagon fleet executives and interested persons should plan to attend the summit before the 10, 000 slots are filled.
