Owner-operator Linda Caffee shares a laugh with Administrator Ferro.

The owner-operators of the Trucking Solutions Group and other participants walked 1.5 miles to boost health awareness today at 2 p.m. at the Mid-America Trucking Show in Louisville. Following word that came in late Thursday fromĀ Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration head Anne Ferro that she would walk with the group, large numbers of drivers came out to join.

Nearing its end, Ferro said she was heartened by the experience. “It’s great to see drivers banding together on this to benefit health” directly, she said, as well as raise awareness about its importance.

Also walking with drivers was TravelCenters of America CEO Tom O’Brien — TA Petro was a primary sponsor of the event.
