The World’s Largest Truck Convoy®, a Law Enforcement Torch Run initiative, is nationwide celebration that raises funds and awareness for Special Olympics. Thousands of truck drivers, company owners, Department of Transportation officials and law enforcement officers participate in events held in 26 U.S. states and 2 Canadian provinces. From a single event held in Orlando, FL in 2001, where 97 trucks raised $17,000, the Truck Convoy has expanded dramatically over the years raising more than $625,000!
In 2015, two Truck Convoy events, led by escorts of the Kansas Law Enforcement Torch Run, raised over $43,000 for Special Olympics Kansas!
Kansas ranked 4th overall in the United States and 1st in per truck fundraising! Congratulations to everyone who participated or sponsored
You are Number 1!
2016 will be the 10th Anniversary of the NW Kansas Convoy. Consider joining us to make it a year to remember!
