Legacy Parks Foundation and Pilot/Flying J will launch an innovative Get Out and Play partnership this month that will offer Pilot/Flying J employee year-round opportunities to get outdoors and get healthy. The Get Out and Play Health Partnership will provide Pilot employees with a menu of activities and learning experiences that will help prepare and guide new outdoor adventurers as well as those looking to take their adventure to the next level.
Legacy Parks’ staff – plus local adventurers and experts – will coordinate and lead all of the activities, which will include guided hikes, paddle board and kayak outings, and participation in outdoor events such as Outdoor KnoxFest, Tour de Lights and the REV 3 Triathlon.
Additionally, Legacy Parks will bring outdoor retailers and organizations to the Pilot/Flying J campus twice a year to give employees the chance to learn about outdoor gear, test outdoor produces and talk with leading outdoor adventurers. Participants in the January Demo Day are:
• The Bike Zoo
• 3 Rivers Angler
• River Sports Outfitters
• Bearden Bike & Trail
• Billy Lush Paddle Sports
• Tennessee Valley Bikes
• Knoxville Track Club
• Legacy Parks Foundation
Additionally, there will be a 30-minute “Get Out and Play” talk by some of Knoxville’s top outdoor enthusiasts, including:
• Kenny Reed of Billy Lush Paddle Sports
• Laura Jones of River Sports Outfitters
• Jim Richards of Mast General Store
• Missy Kane, Get on the Trails leader
Pilot employees participating in the initiative will receive a “Get Out and Play” shirt, water bottle and will be eligible for retailer and event discounts. Upcoming monthly events include day hikes, paddle boarding on the Tennessee River, kayaking and a triathlon.
