It was an awesome sight as 147 trucks took part in the 11th annual Special Olympics Delaware Truck Convoy on Saturday in Harrington. The unique event, sponsored by FedEx Ground and Walmart, is a celebration of the trucking industry and its support of Special Olympics. Delaware law enforcement began their escort at the Delaware State Fairgrounds, leading truckers on a 30-mile drive through Southern Delaware. Individual truckers, trucking companies, sponsors, and friends of SODE helped raise $43,000 for the non-profit. More than $333,000 has been raised in the event’s 11-year history.
