Walkers will meet in Room D168 of the Dallas Convention Center beginning at 8 a.m.
In addition, the Trucking Solutions Group will also be conducting its annual blood drive in partnership with the American Red Cross and Randall Reilly on all three days of the show. The blood drive will be held in Booth No. 21038 .

Every two seconds, someone in the U.S. needs blood, which creates the need for 38,000 blood donations every day. Less than 38 percent of the U.S. population is eligible to donate blood making the goal of 38,000 donations per day a daunting challenge. Because blood cannot be manufactured, the American Red Cross depends on the generosity of its donors to maintain their supply.
