In support of Special Olympics Nova Scotia Athletes

SAVE THE DATE: Saturday, September 24th, 2022

The 11th Annual Truck Convoy in support of Special Olympics Nova Scotia will take place on Saturday, September 24th, 2022. Truckers from Nova Scotia and beyond will unite with our partners in Law Enforcement (LETR) to support Special Olympics athletes.

We are thrilled our 2021, 10th Anniversary Truck Convoy was not only the #1 Convoy in North America, both in funds raised and the number of trucks participating, but was also a record-breaking year, with most funds ever raised – OVER $150,000!

If you have participated in the past, we thank you and hope you will join us again this year. New trucks and drivers are most welcome! Registration and online driver fundraising opportunities will be launched in the coming weeks, so check back often.

Keep an eye on our Convoy Facebook Page and check back to our website often.

With our athletes returning to training and play, your support is more important than ever. Our athletes miss their sports and participating in the Convoy.
