JOIN THE 13th ANNUAL MIGHTY TRUCK CONVOY!
The World’s Largest Truck Convoy for Special Olympics is a celebration of the Trucking Industry in support of Special Olympics. It is a unique one-day event where Law Enforcement make special dispensation and escort a convoy of trucks through parts of Southern Ontario. The event raises much needed funds and awareness for Special Olympics.
Participants meet at Paris Fairgrounds and are then escorted in a convoy on a pre-determined route, then back to the fairgrounds where they are welcomed by the local Special Olympics community – athletes, families, friends, colleagues, Law Enforcement, and the organizations, companies and agencies that make up the trucking industry.
A celebration will follow which includes lunch, awards ceremony, prize draws, family entertainment and much more!

START FUNDRAISING NOW TO BE LEAD TRUCK!
The honour of leading the Convoy will go to the trucker who has raised the most funds. This is a great way to show your support for the Special Olympics, as well as create exposure for your truck and company. Ask your friends, family, coworkers, vendors, and service and parts providers to sponsor your entry! With the help of your community, you can stand at the forefront of the trucking industry’s support of the Special Olympics.
YOUR EFFORTS CHANGE THE LIVES OF SPECIAL OLYMPICS ATHLETES!
Since 2005, the Truck Convoy in Paris has raised over $595,000 for individuals living with an intellectual disability in Ontario. Your funds have made a direct impact on over 23,000 Special Olympics Ontario athletes! Without the much needed funds and awareness that the Truck Convoy provides, our beloved athletes would not have the opportunity to compete and enjoy all of the benefits that sport provides to enhance their lives.
Truck Convoy supporters; thank you and keep on trucking for a cause! #BigRigs #BigHearts #BigResults
