6/22/2016

The World’s Largest Truck Convoy for Special Olympics 2016 will take place on Saturday, July 16, 2016 presented by CIT Trucks and Law Enforcement Torch Run for Special Olympics Illinois. The Convoy celebrates the trucking industry while raising money and awareness for the Special Olympics.

Special Olympic Illinois is a not-for-profit organization that offers year-round training and competitions in 19 sports for nearly 22,000 athletes with intellectual disabilities, plus an additional 21,000 athletes ages 2-7 with and without intellectual disabilities. The programs are free-of-charge to athletes and families.

The Convoy will begin at CIT Trucks – Troy, IL with law enforcement officers to escort the Convoy about 25 miles along Interstate 55 and 270 before returning to the starting location. Special Olympics athletes and families, the community, companies and law enforcement agencies will welcome the truckers as they return to CIT Trucks for dinner and a celebration, complete with awards, raffles and music.

Please consider supporting this event to help transform the lives of people with intellectual disabilities. Special Olympics helps them realize their full potential in sports and in life by providing these programs that enhance physical fitness, motor skills, self-confidence, social skills and encourage family and community support.
