With more than 35 years of experience in the transportation industry, Barry Pawelek started Truck Stop Events International in Hinton, Oklahoma in 1995. Since then, he has put together a 53-foot and a 20-foot custom made health & wellness display trailer. He now puts them to good use by show casing them on an "over the road" health & wellness program, that can stop at different truck shows, truck companies and travel centers across the USA to promote his message

Early in the start up of his program he was asked by some friends and co-workers to define what he believed in as a Health & Wellness company provider. His answer came from his childhood past. 

I asked himself, "Why am I out here" and I remembered something from the summer of 1957 when I was at the age of 13. I remembered sitting down in a restaurant to have lunch when another boy about my age came in. As I watched the boy eat, I noticed how the boy really enjoyed what he was eating. I noticed that after finishing his meal I saw that the boy wanted another helping. But I also saw the boy didn’t have enough money to pay for it. I wanted to help him and I noticed that I still had half of my own lunch that I could offer to the boy.

 I then noticed something I did not see at first, the other boy was really overweight. Seeing him so hungry saddened me, but I realized that giving my half-finished lunch might not be the best thing for this boy. Being 13 years old at the time, I couldn’t think of any other way to help, but now more than 50 years later, I know that the extra weight would have killed that boy later in life.

I have since turned my passion for helping others into an organization. This is one of the main reasons we are the company we are today.

I have always been committed to serving the people who need our help the most by providing helpful healthy solutions that will work for them.  We base our programs on their answers from our "on site" surveys. It has always been our practice to help as a service to others and never for profit.

When companies help us, we can help others, and those companies can benefit from the exposure that they get from our programs. This support has helped many in the transportation industry today to make better choices for themselves. Seeing progress and change taking place has always been my end goal, that is why I have a 100% non-paid staff company. With continued guidance, I hope to keep moving forward. All of our Health & Wellness programs are free to CDL drivers, all they need to do is sign up.

But remember I cannot do this programs alone. 

                           Our Duty as a company is the same as our Mission

                                               With your help I would like to bring our new Health & Wellness trailer out.
