At Steering Your Health we know staying healthy on the road is difficult. We share tips and stories to hopefully inspire all drivers to conquer the health challenges in an over-the-road career.
A Con-way Truckload driver wants to go beyond sharing his story of overcoming weight and health issues by urging other drivers to do the same. Toby Bogard created a 1,000,000 Pound Challenge open to all drivers and riders with no entry fee in order to encourage a healthy lifestyle on the road. The Challenge is a weight loss competition designed to bring the industry together in a collective effort to lose 1,000,000 pounds over an eight week period! While sometimes difficult, it is possible to maintain a healthy lifestyle while doing what you love - driving. As an incentive, the top three finishers will receive prizes.
The grand prize will be an all-inclusive five-day, four-night vacation with transportation provided to the Solmar Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, courtesy of Go CDL Jobs with an estimated value of over $3,200. The first runner up package will include a new Cobra 8000 Pro HD GPS Unit, a Cobra 29 LX BT C.B radio and a Black Box windshield dash-cam, courtesy of Cobra Electronics and Blue Tiger. The second runner up prize package will include a new Blue Tiger ELITE Bluetooth headset, $100 in gift cards from Pilot/Flying J. The contest begins September 30, 2013 and ends November 30, 2013.
