We want you to join our Mighty Convoy(s)!
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. This year we are happy to host 2 Convoy's in Paris and Brampton, respectively.
We are looking for Law Enforcement participation in either/all:
1) Participate in the Convoy in a marked cruiser/vehicle
2) Participate in the Truck Pull with Truck Drivers and SOO Athletes
