Visitors to the Great American Trucking Show (GATS) this August in Dallas will have yet another attraction to enjoy, and it’s a healthy one.

The Trucking Solutions Group (TSG) is expanding its healthy presence at GATS, which will be held Aug. 27-29 at the Kay Bailey Hutchinson Convention Center. In addition to its annual Health Awareness Walk, it will be part of a variety of free health screenings, including a mobile mammogram unit at the Landstar Fit for the Road Health and Wellness Pavilion.

A fund-raising campaign is under way to help cover the cost of mammograms for CDL holders who do not have insurance or cannot otherwise afford the $300 screening. The TSG is attempting to raise $30,000.

Any funds collected above that goal will be donated to the St. Christopher Truckers Development and Relief Fund.

There are two ways make your tax deductible donation to:

St. Christopher Fund — Mammogram
P.O. Box 30763
Knoxville, TN 37930

Or online at the TSG’s GoFundMe portal.
