Oct. 5 I travelled to Woodstock to witness the Convoy for a Cure, organized by Joanne Mackenzie and her ever-growing team of helpful volunteers. What an event! What a nasty day!
The wind was howling but it did not dampen the spirit that was on display, as drivers decorated their trucks – and themselves – in pink.
Drivers have gotten much more courageous about donning the pink in recent years, I’ve noticed, and good on’em.
A ton of money was raised, including $25,000 by Cervus Equipment and its employees alone. The good sports at TA Travel Center in Woodstock allowed organizers to bring the festivities indoors, and this included a rock show that was probably louder than any rock show ever performed inside a truck stop!
A lot of fun was had and a lot of money raised. You can read my report, including the names of the Top 10 fundraisers here.
