Truck Convoy helps to support 2018 Team NS athletes

If you haven’t yet heard the exciting news, Nova Scotia is proud to be hosting the Special Olympics National Games in 2018. This will be our first time hosting National Games since 1994, which makes it a pretty huge deal. With lots to do before then, the anticipation is certainly raising.

Hosted at ST. FX University in Antigonish, Nova Scotian pride will be in full display as athletes from all around Canada unite to compete for a medal.  Team Nova Scotia is currently in the process of being selected. A whopping 108 local Nova Scotian athletes are set to attend the games next year who will be supported by 48 coaches and mission staff.

Given the significance of the occasion, fundraising demands to send 156 athletes and coaches to Nationals, as well as to host such a large Nation-wide event are high. This is where support from the Truck Convoy comes in. A large portion of your fundraising efforts and donations will go to supporting the athletes who have worked so hard to qualify. This means your donations will help send athletes, couches, and volunteers to National Games, as well as help provide the best in equipment, nutritional food, Team NS gear, etc.  Each and every donation, whether small or large, is important to Special Olympics Nova Scotia. With your help we can ensure we give our athletes and coaches the best experiences and opportunities possible.
