2023 Truck Convoy for Special Olympics
Event Date: August 26, 2023
Location: South Carolina Farmers Market, Columbia
On Saturday, August 26, 2023, join the compassionate army of truck drivers, as law enforcement officers escort the
Truck Convoy for Special Olympics South Carolina across the highways of South Carolina to raise awareness and funds for
Special Olympics athletes and change attitudes toward people with intellectual disabilities.
The Truck Convoy® is a national celebration of the trucking industry and its support of Special Olympics.
Truckers will meet at the grounds of the South Carolina State Farmers Market, and will be escorted North then back
South, on I-77 in Columbia. On return to the State Farmers Market, they are welcomed by the Special Olympics athletes,
families, friends, colleagues, law enforcement officers and supporters that make up the trucking industry. A lunch
celebration and activities will be followed by an awards ceremony held to recognize participating truckers and their
support of the trucking industry and Special Olympics. Whichever form the celebration takes, the message is the same:
“Thank you for your support of Special Olympics athletes and for keeping our communities moving!”
Families of all participants are welcome to share in the celebration and free lunch!
