WASHINGTON, D.C. — In an attempt to maintain Guinness Book of World Record status, law enforcement and truckers throughout Canada and the US will join forces to hold the Worlds Largest Truck Convoy (WTLC), Sept. 16. From New Jersey to California, dozens of miles of highway will be lined with hundreds of law enforcement officers and over 4,000 trucks as they convoy in various North American cities celebrating their support of Special Olympics athletes. The WLTC has held its status as the Worlds Largest Truck Convoy for the past six years.
The Special Olympics has a way of bringing everyone together, setting aside differences and building atmospheres of acceptance, said Corp. Norm Schneiderhan, WTLC creator. The fact that the Special Olympics can bring together law enforcement and truckers is a testament to how the athletes of Special Olympics are a true inspiration. Every mile a trucker travels during the Truck Convoy equals a change in attitudes toward the athletes.
