Highway to Hope Podcast | Trucker’s Health Challenge
It’s here! The St. Christopher Truckers Relief Fund (SFC) Highway to Hope Podcast Episode 6 is out! The trucking community is in need of a health and wellness overhaul.
The Trucking Industry Needs A Health Boost:
The trucking industry is in danger. Karl Sieber, Ph.D. noted on the CDCs website that: “Twenty-seven percent of drivers reported no moderate or vigorous physical activity of at least 30 minutes duration during the previous 7 days.”
And in this episode, Julie from St. Christopher Truckers Relief Fund, Kim McDonnell from RoadPro, drivers Craig Daniels and Carmen Andersen join alongside Hope Zvara from Mother Trucker Yoga as they discuss the state of the trucking industry and their health. But more importantly what can be done now. It’s time and every driver has the ability to make some type of change and with the right kind of support, they too can improve their health starting today! AIt’s because of this that Mother Trucker Yoga and SFC are teaming up to create a 100% FREE wellness challenge for truck drivers.
