When Irving Oil agreed to become presenting sponsor of the World’s Largest Truck Convoy in support of Special Olympics Nova Scotia, the organizers did a dance of joy.
One of those organizers was Anne Marie Shannon, Manager, Events & Communications for Special Olympics N.S. Anne Marie knows all too well the importance of having a caring company like Irving Oil lend their support to one of her organization’s largest and most important fundraising events of the year.
“For a charitable organization like ours, being able to build a relationship and count on a well-established company like Irving Oil is so important,” she said. “We know how much they care about our athletes, professional drivers and the communities where their employees live and work. We’re grateful for their support which ultimately helps us deliver great programs for our 1,700 athletes across Nova Scotia.”
Irving Oil has a long history of supporting the Special Olympics movement, through support of the World’s Largest Truck Convoy here in Nova Scotia, and in the U.S., where they recently celebrated a 16-year partnership that has helped raised more than $3.3 million for Special Olympics in New England.
Through their valuable support for the World’s Largest Truck Convoy, Special Olympics Nova Scotia hopes to have the biggest and best truck convoy yet! Thank you Irving Oil!
