Be the Lead Truck

Imagine leading a convoy through some of the busiest streets of Nova Scotia as people on the sidewalks cheer you on. Don’t just join our convoy, lead it!

The honour of leading the convoy will go to the driver who has raised the most funds. This is a great way to show your support for Special Olympic athletes, as well as create exposure for your truck and company. Reach out to your friends, family, coworkers, vendors, and service and parts providers to sponsor your entry! With the help of your community, you can stand at the forefront of the trucking industry’s support of the Special Olympics.



We are so very grateful to every driver who helps to support our athletes through the collection of pledges. In consultation with other Convoys in Canada, the guidelines for determining the lead truck and the top 10 drivers will be as follows:


  1. All pledges must be turned in by 8:45 am on the day of the Convoy
  2. There will be no leaderboard
  3. The driver with the most pledges turned in by 8:45 am will be lead truck
  4. There will be no opportunity to up your bid once the money has been turned in
  5. Submissions from all drivers in the Top 10 positions will be reviewed to verify their bids (this is to be sure the online donations are calculated properly with onsite contributions.)  The Lead Driver, Lead Team and Top 2 to 10 will be awarded at the Convoy. .


Lead Team will follow the same guidelines as above with the following rules:


  1. To create a team, there must be 4 or more trucks in the team
  2. Each team member must collect at least $100 in pledges

The driver who is LEAD TRUCK may also be a team member for LEAD TEAM. For example, if John Doe collects $1000 in pledges and is a part of a team that collects pledges, he can be Lead Truck and still be a team member for Lead Team.
