Healthy Hauler Step Challenge
A program to provide BC's Log Truck drivers with an opportunity to become more active in an easy, fun, and inexpensive way. With the use of pedometers provided by the BCFSC, truckers can track the number of steps they take each day, log them over a month’s time, compete for prizes and earn recognition in their industry. They can challenge themselves, their co-workers, and teams from other companies. The first round of the step challenge begins October 15, 2013. Interested persons can contact the BC Forest Safety Council at 1-877-324-1212 or email@example.com.
