MIRAMICHI, N.B. — The first New Brunswick Convoy for a Cure is gaining steam, but organizers are seeking more participation from the industry – including female drivers.
“This unique fundraiser celebrates the role that women play in the trucking industry and at the same time we will be raising money for the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation – Atlantic Canada,” says organizer Roxanne Doran Smith. “Let’s drive out cancer one truck at a time.”
About 50 female drivers are expected to take part in the New Brunswick leg of the convoy, which also includes events in Ontario, Alberta and Texas. The convoy will travel down TCH#2 on Oct. 17.
Men with female passengers are also welcome to participate in a “support convoy.”
At the conclusion of the convoy, guest speakers will address the crowd and a Maritime-style kitchen party will feature hamburgers, hot dogs and popcorn. Information and registration forms are available online at www.convoyforacure-nb.com.
