Thanks to the 45 truckers who helped raise $25,000 for Special Olympics North Carolina during the 2020 Truck Convoy in Charlotte. We are grateful to all the sponsors and truckers for helping make this year the best it could be under pandemic circumstances.
What’s a Truck Convoy?
The Truck Convoy is an annual event which unites law enforcement and truckers to raise funds and awareness for Special Olympics athletes and change attitudes toward people with intellectual disabilities. Two thousand big rig trucks will traverse throughout the United States and Canada throughout the year. More than 100 trucks travel 28 miles up and down I-485 before returning to the PNC Music Pavilion for a celebratory lunch.
Participants are encouraged to raise as much as possible, but a minimum donation of $100 is required to participate in the Truck Convoy.
