Our 2014 Truck Convoy surpassed all our records and expectations.
It takes a community of generous sponsors, drivers, donors, volunteers, athletes and their families to have such an outstanding result!
Not to mention a very supportive Grand Marshal, Alex Debogorski who donated his entire weekend to support our Athletes and the guidance of our Law Enforcement Officers (LETR) to clear the way for our Convoy route and our DND Shearwater Partners, Hanger F, where it all happened!
