The annual Make-A-Wish Mother’s Day Truck Convoy in Pennsylvania returns to its traditional weekend this year after being delayed to later in the year last year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
This year’s 100-truck convoy will include the top 30 drivers who raise the most money for the Philadelphia, Delaware and Susquehanna Valley Make-A-Wish chapter, key sponsors, and drivers who commit to fundraising at least $500.
The drivers will leave Manheim Pennsylvania Auto Auction at 1:30 p.m. on Sunday, May 9. Make-A-Wish will be broadcasting the convoy live on their Facebook page for fans to watch at home. Facebook Live will include drivers departing the parking lot, a view from inside a special Convoy driver’s truck, and a location along the route. There will not be a convoy carnival, and the Manheim Pennsylvania Auto Auction will not be open to the public.
There are still spots available in the 100-truck convoy, and those who wish to participate can register here.
“Not even a yearlong (and counting) pandemic can stop this renowned event.” said Dennis Heron, President and CEO of Make-A-Wish Philadelphia, Delaware & Susquehanna Valley. “It may be different again this year, forced to again abandon the carnival aspect of Convoy, but Convoy it will be – with many of the favorite activities such as the Mother’s Day chicken dinner and the popular auction."
The 2021 Truck Convoy is presented by RoadPro and is sponsored by the Convoy’s official insurance agency, Good’s Insurance, and other dedicated sponsors: CAG Truck Capital, Cumberland Truck Equipment, Brubacher Excavating, Safelite Auto, High Companies, and Insulation Companies of America.
