Truck Convoy raises money for Special Olympics

The Truck Convoy concept  is an International project of the Law Enforcement Torch Run   working in conjunction with Truckers   to raise funds and awareness for Special Olympics..

Organizers  say  at  least  80 trucks have registered for this year’s event  on the Perimeter Highway.
    The drivers and their big rigs are gathering in Oak Bluff Saturday morning  and they expect to get onto the Perimeter,  from Highway 2,   around 11.

    The trucks will have a police escort  and move around the Perimeter in a counter-clockwise direction.
    Since  2001,  These Convoys have raised two million dollars across North America   for Special Olympics.

     Last  year,   the Manitoba Convoy involved 52  trucks and raised about 22,000 dollars
