As the day closes and I reflect on our day, I can not even speak without getting tears in my eyes! So many wonderful truckers have left such a wonderful impression on me. This group overwhelms me. To think they raised $10,000 in pledges — for an organization many have no connection to — is amazing to me.
One trucker wanted lead truck so bad, but gave up the bid to let another company with an athlete win, because he could not bear to bid against an athlete.
I have been doing fundraising events for Special Olympics for 10 years. My dad is a trucker. This event has by far been the best yet. It has drawn so many emotions from all. Even my long-term volunteers, who I have never seen cry, cried today!
Long story short — truckers have an amazingly big heart. Thank you!
