We got us a convoy!
An idea that started with five trucks twenty years ago is growing strong.
“This year was one of the biggest and loudest yet,” said Dan Oliver, event participant.
According to event organizers, The Make-A-Wish Truck Convoy has raised more than $239,000for the Wisconsin Make-A-Wish Foundation since its inception two decades earlier. The event starts in Neillsville, travels through Marshfield, and rounds back to the Clark County Fairgrounds, where the convoy then includes with a silent auction.
Throughout the route, people line the streets to support the cause. Local Police and State Patrol help direct traffic along the route. Every year local agencies help make the event a success.
“It was a struggle at first, however now they are calling us to help get involved,” said founding organizer Punk Montgomery. “Our goal is to make the kids smile.”
With that goal in mind, the event continues to grow year after year. With your entry and donation, you can help the convoy reach its goal. For more information on future events, follow them on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/maw.truckconvoy
