What is the Truck Convoy?
The Truck Convoy is a celebration of the trucking industry and its support for Special Olympics. What started as a local event in Florida in 2001, has evolved into an International movement with Convoy’s in over 40 States and 5 Provinces annually.
The Ontario Truck Convoy began in Paris in 2005 and has been going strong ever since! In 2016, a 2nd Convoy was formed in the GTA. This Ontario Truck Convoy has raised over $600,000 for the Ontario Law Enforcement Torch Run for Special Olympics since 2005.
How does the Truck Convoy Raise Money?
‘Truckers’ pay a $100 registration fee to join the Mighty Convoy and individually fundraise for their chance to become the prestigious Lead Truck. The Convoy solicits corporate sponsors and engages community partners to contribute financial to this great fundraising event for a cause!
Where does the money go?
100% of the funds will directly benefit the Law Enforcement Torch Run for Special Olympics.
