The World’s Largest Truck Convoy®, a Law Enforcement Torch Run initiative, is nationwide celebration that raises funds and awareness for Special Olympics. Thousands of truck drivers, company owners, Department of Transportation officials and law enforcement officers participate in events held in 26 U.S. states and 2 Canadian provinces. From a single event held in Orlando, FL in 2001, where 97 trucks raised $17,000, the Truck Convoy has expanded dramatically over the years raising millions of dollars for Special Olympics!
In 2016, convoys in the US and Canada raised $992,420.53!
Kansas ranked 8th in funds raised – an awesome $58,372.48!
Thank you to all the drivers, partners, law enforcement officers and volunteers who make the Kansas Convoys
FIRST IN FUNDS RAISED PER TRUCK!
Join us delivering dreams to Kansas athletes!
Every new truck moves SOKS forward.
Truck owners and drivers must register to join the convoys which parade through local towns and end their journey at a local venue for lunch and awards. A valid driver’s license and proof of insurance are required to participate and walk up registrations are welcome. To register, simply download the waiver, complete and mail to SOKS, 5280 Foxridge Drive, Mission, KS 66202 or contact one of the event coordinators listed in the brochures.
