The dreams of Special Olympics athletes are fuelled by fundraising efforts across Nova Scotia. Truckers who are raising funds for the truck convoy among friends, family, coworkers, and other members of their communities can use our Pledge Sheets (PDF) to keep track of donations.
These contributions are tax-deductible and help raise funds for children and adults with an intellectual disability by providing year-round sport training and competition.
Driver Pledge Incentives
Drivers who collect pledges will be eligible to receive some great prizes this year to help us reach our goal of raising $100,000 for our athletes.
The individual who collects the most pledges will receive our lead truck banner and travel first in the convoy as Lead Truck.
The Team who collects the most pledges will receive our Lead Team banner and travel behind our sponsors and before the remaining trucks. Individual drivers are eligible to collect incentive prizes based on their individual pledge totals.
To see what great prizes we have in store for those collecting pledges, view our always growing Driver Incentives package.
Our ONLINE pledge platform is also available for those who prefer the convenience of electronic pledging. When you choose to create a profile and collect pledges online, there is no worrying about chasing down those last minute donations. All pledges get directed to SONS and added to your fundraising tally. How convenient is that? To begin your ONLINE pledging now, click here
Take the Challenge
The majority of the registration money goes towards making this day great for you and your family.
Our athletes win when you, the driver, collect pledges!
If every driver took the 10 day challenge and collected $500 in pledges, the drivers alone would raise $76,000! Together we would raise over $100,000 for our athletes.
