WHAT IS THE TRUCK CONVOY?
The Truck Convoy is a celebration of the trucking industry and its support for Special Olympics. What started as a local event in Florida in 2001, the event has evolved into an international movement with Convoys in over 24 states and 4 provinces annually.
The South Dakota Convoy began in Sioux Falls and Rapid City in 2003 with an event being held in both locations for the first 2 years. In 2005, Sioux Falls continued on and has been going strong ever since. In 2014, the Rapid City Convoy was restarted and is now growing as strong as ever. The South Dakota Convoys, since 2003, have had a total of 1.393 trucks involved and have raised over $532,000 for the South Dakota Law Enforcement Torch Run for Special Olympics.
HOW DOES THE TRUCK CONVOY RAISE MONEY?
To participate, 'truckers' pay a $100 fee before or at registration. During the event, both locations hold auctions for valuable items as well as for the prestigious title of Lead Truck. The Convoy solicits corporate sponsors and engages community partners to contribute financially to this great fundraising event for a great cause!
WHERE DOES THE MONEY GO?
100% of the funds go directly to support and benefit the Law Enforcement Torch Run; Special Olympics South Dakota's largest grassroots fundraising campaign. Special Olympics South Dakota has over 2,100 Athletes statewide and is growing larger every day.
