Saturday, September 18th, 2021 will mark the 10th Anniversary of the Truck Convoy in support of Special Olympics Nova Scotia. Truckers from Nova Scotia and beyond will unite with our partners in Law Enforcement (LETR) to support Special Olympics athletes. The event will start at CFB Shearwater, and the Convoy will depart from there to travel through the streets of Dartmouth, Cole Harbour and Eastern Passage.
Drivers will come together to showcase their trucks among trucking friends and the community at large, who come out by the thousands to watch the Convoy. Truck Convoys are held throughout North America annually. This celebration of the trucking industry to raise much needed funds for, and showcase an awareness of, the support of the trucking industry to the Special Olympic athletes. This international movement involves more than 12,000 trucks and athletes in 24 states and four provinces.
2012 marked the first annual convoy in Nova Scotia. Our Nova Scotia convoy has grown to be the largest in all of North America, with 200 trucks and raising more than $750,000 over the past nine years!! We look forward to ringing the bell with a new outstanding total as we complete the 10th anniversary convoy this year.
We look forward to a celebration at the convoy featuring prizes, entertainment, a raffle, refreshments. Most importantly, our chance to bring together our drivers, Law Enforcement Torch Run partners, military hosts, volunteers and Special Olympic athletes to celebrate and thank the trucking industry! We will be watching the Nova Scotia Public Health and Safety guidelines and will post updates about the event on the website and Facebook.
We are thrilled that this event has sold out for the last several years. We anticipate reaching our capacity quickly, so if you are a driver, register early so you will not be disappointed.
Currently the “Truck Buddy” program is not available, due to Nova Scotia Public Health and Safety restrictions. If this changes we will let you know.
