Oklahoma City (PRWEB) October 30, 2013
US Fleet Tracking, the global leader in first-to-market live GPS tracking technology, has long been an integral presence internationally in the most recognizable sports venues in the world as the sole provider of location and transportation-based live GPS tracking. This places the company at events ranging from the 2010 Calgary Winter Olympics to Londons Summer Olympiad in 2012 to the past seven Super Bowls. The Oklahoma City-based company is now forging ahead with an initiative that spearheads the support of wide-ranging philanthropic causes. In the process, the company is building a reputation as a key player in the growing wellness initiative in the state of Oklahoma.
“Were thrilled to work with US Fleet tracking during the OKC Memorial Marathon. By using their product on our transportation busses, it will allow us to communicate better with runners and track the timing as we begin to plan for future years,” says Kari Watkins, Executive Director of the Oklahoma City National Memorial & Museum. “Were also testing their devices to track runners along the course and are excited to be piloting a program that may become a standard for our race.”
US Fleet Trackings extensive implementation of live GPS tracking devices is thought to be unprecedented in a marathon of the stature Oklahoma Citys holds. Plans to expand upon the companys presence are in the works for the 2014 event, which is Oklahomas largest road race, attracting 25,000-plus participants.
US Fleet Trackings mark on high-profile sporting events goes deeper than simply the technology its live GPS tracking devices offer.
US Fleet Tracking is Presenting Sponsor of the Redman Triathlon, and its two-fold contribution of live GPS tracking devices and sponsorship funds has helped elevate the full and half-iron distance event to destination triathlon status nationally and worldwide, in only eight years of existence.
“In endurance events, as all sporting events, safety is the primary focus. US Fleet Trackings donation of live GPS tracking units contribute greatly to this aspect,” states Dave Wood, Executive Director of Redman.
Testimony to the recognition Oklahoma Citys Redman Triathlon is receiving is that if the United States receives designation as host country for the 2016 Long Course World Championships, Redman will be the host event, a decision coming down shortly.
Wood sums up the partnership: “The forward thinking and generosity of US Fleet Tracking helps us immensely in creating an event that Oklahoma City deserves and the world watches.”
Oklahomas success in its push toward becoming a more health-conscious state is reflected in other of US Fleet Trackings sponsorships. This year, US Fleet Tracking teamed with the Oklahoma City Fire Department for the first Project Life Run, as Title Sponsor of the 5K race. With over $ 13,000 raised to purchase smoke detectors for all citizens who request them, this was the most successful event the OCFD has ever produced for this cause.
Jerry Hunter, US Fleet Tracking founder and CEO, who ran the 5K, was pleased to have lent the US Fleet Tracking name, and its resources, to the event: “From a standing start, Oklahoma Citys Fire Department, assisted by our US Fleet Tracking team, produced a morning that had everything. The Honor Guard was on display, kids were able to participate with fun games, healthy physical activity, and the bottom line was that vital funds were raised that might save lives.”
CEO Hunter identifies how these sporting events fit perfectly with the company focus. “We place a premium on health and wellness-driven events at our company, and these two events, though varied in size and nature, continue to be at the forefront of Oklahomas drive to be a fitter state,” says Hunter.
“The Oklahoma City Fire Department is absolutely thrilled to be in partnership with US Fleet Tracking. As our Platinum/Title sponsor for our annual Project Life Run, US Fleet Tracking is an amazing example of what it means to be a true community partner,” says Project Life Run Race Director and Oklahoma City Fire Department Captain Benny Fulkerson. “Their generous donation and overall support of our event allows us to continue placing life-saving smoke alarms in Oklahoma City homes. Its wonderful to have such a prominent business with that level of commitment to their community.”
US Fleet Trackings growing corporate wellness presence includes yoga classes available to employees and their families, and corporate fitness facilities at its headquarters. These initiatives have not gone unnoticed by Oklahoma City leaders.
Mayor Mick Cornett, who led a health and wellness initiative in 2008 which achieved international acclaim, speaks of US Fleet Trackings growing presence, both in and out of the workplace.
“As US Fleet Tracking extends its reach worldwide, their example of community impact right here in their own backyard is equally impressive. The companys steadfast priority of involvement in high-profile events that promote healthy lifestyles is particularly noteworthy. US Fleet Tracking is an outstanding representation of the best we have to offer in Oklahoma.”
US Fleet Tracking is the leader in live vehicle and asset tracking, providing groundbreaking sub-ten-second live GPS tracking. In addition to expertise in tracking commercial vehicles, the company provides tracking services to high-profile, large-scale public venues. These include the 2010 Winter Olympics, 2012 Summer Olympic Games, 2012 Republican National Convention, and Super Bowls XLI through XLVI.

The most recent Google update called Hummingbird has completely changed the way websites are ranked and clinical study advertisements are shown.
