Truckers Help Support Make-A-Wish Event
Raise Money, Grant Wishes and Set a Record!
Truckers are joining together with the Make A Wish Foundation of Philadelphia, Northern Delaware and Susquehanna Valley to raise money to help children with severe medical conditions. With the help of truck drivers from all over the country, they have raised $5 million over the past 26 years.
It’s annual Mother’s Day Truck Convoy For Wishes is one of its major fundraisers, and in 2016 the Pennsylvania organization hopes to raise more than $350,000 to grant wishes to children with severe medical conditions. Road Pro is the lead sponsor for the event.
This year’s event to be held on May 8, has several goals in mind:
- Raise more than $350K to grant wishes to children with severe medical conditions.
- Raise awareness and support for kids with severe medical needs.
- Get at least 500 trucks to participate and in doing so set a new record for the largest truck convoy in the world.
The convoy assembles at the Burle Business Park in Lancaster, Pa., and events get started at The 8:30 a.m. Plans call for the convoy to depart the business park at 1:30 p.m., travel to Ephrata, Pa., and return.
