The 2017 Truck Convoy for Special Olympics has joined forces once again with 4-State Trucks and Chrome Shop Mafia for their Guilty By Association Truck Show and Customer Expo. Truck show events are scheduled for Friday and Saturday. Convoy trucks will leave 4-State Trucks escorted by Joplin PD. Special Olympics athletes, families, community organizations, companies and law enforcement will join the truckers downtown for a celebration at the end of the convoy.
Special Olympics Southwest Area serves 1,244 people with intellectual disabilities in the 23 counties in the region. Improvements in physical fitness and motor skills, greater self confidence and self-image are just a few skills Special Olympics athletes develop through participation in the program. Your participation in the Truck Convoy helps continue to provide year-round sports training and athletic competitions for our athletes.
