The Truck Convoy is celebration of the trucking industry and its support of Special Olympics.  It is a unique one-day celebration in which law enforcement makes special dispensation and escorts a convoy of trucks up to 30 miles through their town.  Inspired by the powerful impact Special Olympics had on his life through his participation in the Law Enforcement Torch Run, combined with his family's involvement with the trucking industry, Norm Schneiderhan, a Corporal with the Orange County Sheriff's Department, created the Truck Convoy, a one-day celebration of the trucking industry to help raise awareness and funds for Special Olympics.

Special Olympics Delaware is an organization that changes lives by promoting understanding, acceptance and inclusion between people with and without intellectual disabilities. Through year-round sports training, athletic competition and related programs conducted for more than 3,500 children and adults with intellectual disabilities, the organization creates a model community that celebrates people's diverse gifts.  Special Olympics Delaware builds sports skills, confidence, strength, motivation and self-esteem- not just for the athletes, but for everyone involved.
