WHAT IS THE TRUCK CONVOY® to SUPPORT SPECIAL OLYMPICS WYOMING?
The Truck Convoy® is a celebration of the trucking industry and its support of Special Olympics Wyoming athletes. It is a unique one-day celebration in which law enforcement escorts a convoy of trucks up to 50 miles through their respective towns across the U.S and Canada. EVENTS TAKE PLACE IN 32 STATES AND 2 PROVINCES IN CANADA.
Truckers and Law Enforcement meet up and stage a convoy through Cheyenne Wyoming to support more than 1,600 children and adults with intellectual disabilities that currently compete in Special Olympics Wyoming. Special Olympics Wyoming offers 16 Olympic-type sports; aquatics, basketball, bocce, cycling, equestrian, golf, powerlifting, softball, soccer, tennis alpine and cross-country skiing, snowboarding, snowshoeing, bowling, and MATP (Motor Activities Training Program)
Inspired by the powerful impact Special Olympics had on his life through his participation in the Law Enforcement Torch Run®, combined with his family's involvement with the trucking industry, Norm Schneiderhan, a Corporal with the Orange County Sheriff's Department, created the Truck Convoy, a one-day celebration of the trucking industry to help raise awareness and funds for Special Olympics.
Athletes celebrate the support from The Trucking Association and Law Enforcement community; funds raised to benefit Special Olympics Wyoming athletes.
