WASHINGTON, D.C. – Alberta and Ontario will be part of the World’s Largest Truck Convoy tour which will attempt to crack the Guinness Book of World Records while raising money for the Special Olympics. Law enforcement officers and truckers are taking part in the Sept. 24 tour which will include 35 states and two provinces. About 3,000 trucks are expected to take part in support of the Special Olympics, organizers say.
“Special Olympics has a way of bringing everyone together, setting aside differences and building atmospheres of acceptance,” said Corp. Norm Schneiderhan, founder of the World’s Largest Truck Convoy. “The fact that Special Olympics can bring together law enforcement and truckers is a testament to how the athletes of Special Olympics are a true inspiration.”
