Trucker Buddy Program
Drivers have the option to host a Special Olympics athlete for the day in our “Trucker Buddy” program. This is a great way for drivers to connect with our charity and understand exactly why raising money for our cause is so important to us. Many of our drivers have made lasting friendships and each year they host the same athlete.
To participate, simply check off the box on the registration forms.
