It's the season for truck convoys and all the work that comes with them to raise money for charities.
In less than two weeks is the Trucking for a Cure Convoy in Woodstock, ON, that begins at the TA Travel Centre, Exit 230 off Sweaburg Rd. There will be a lot of pink on display...on people and trucks.
According to organizers, Trucking for a Cure is a support group on behalf of the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation-Ontario. The group is made up of professional organizations and individuals in the transportation industry.
Trucking For a Cure says it not only raises awareness and funds for the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation, but also builds bridges between commercial drivers, the industry, and the public at large, and hopes to unite trucking enthusiasts behind such a meaningful cause.
This convoy on Oct. 3 follows a sister event held last weekend in Prescott, ON, which made its inaugural run in 2014. Together the two events raised $75,000 last year, according to organizers.
