“We appreciate every fundraiser that occurs on our behalf,” said Robert Palm, who founded Truckers Final Mile in 2014. He manages TFM with a board of volunteers. “The families we assist are in some of the darkest hours in their life, and they’re the ones who benefit from these events. We’re thrilled that Shawn reached out and is doing this for our organization.”
Coast to Coast to Coast in 5 days
Kitchen’s ride, named the Transflo 5,000 in 5: A coast-to-coast fundraiser to support America’s truck drivers, will begin in Jacksonville, Florida, on Monday, Nov. 15. Kitchen will drive to Dog Beach, California, near San Diego, over the next two days, and then turn around and ride back to Jacksonville, with the goal of returning by 5 p.m. local time on Friday, Nov. 19. To complete the journey in time, Kitchen will have to ride more than 1,000 miles (about 14 hours) per day on average.
A little bit about Shawn
Kitchen, with his 2016 Honda Goldwing, won a similar ride competition last year supporting a fundraiser for MS , earning the most points and raising the most money.
Kitchen’s upcoming trip is fully sponsored and any and all individual donations will be given directly to Truckers Final Mile.
Kitchen drove a truck professionally for 16 years, operating across various segments — long-haul and regional dry van, tanker, flatbed, and local pickup and delivery.
Kitchen still occasionally drives a truck, but his day time job is as the Director of Operations at True Load Time, a company which aims to document and reduce time that Drivers spend detained at shipper and receiver facilities.
