Welcome to our site!

In a little more than two months, truckers from across Atlantic Canada will unite in a single convoy to raise awareness and funds for Special Olympics Nova Scotia. The first convoy of its kind in the region, this amazing event will bring together truckers, athletes, volunteers, and law enforcement in a celebration of our values: inclusiveness, acceptance, passion, and commitment to excellence.

In the days and weeks leading up to Sept. 15, this website will be providing regular updates and bringing the stories of truckers, athletes, and volunteers to public attention. But we can’t do it alone.
