On May 14th, 2017 thousands of people will line the Convoy route throughout Lancaster County to wave and cheer on the drivers and their passengers - Wish Kids – a sight that is more than touching to witness: it’s incredibly inspiring! This year, the convoy will celebrate its 28th year by raising enough to reach our goal of granting 45 Wishes!
To drive in the Mother’s Day Truck Convoy, you have to have a desire to make a difference. The truck drivers of the Mother’s Day Truck Convoy open their hearts to the Wish Kids, the families, the general public and the volunteers from Make-A-Wish by giving their time to make this special event happen.
Driving in the Convoy will definitely hit a special spot in your heart; it will be emotional, fun, inspiring and so much more. To see what these Wish Kids and their families go fun-filled day.
Most truck drivers come back year after year to drive the same Wish Kid since they have built a special bond with a particular family. Other drivers bring their own family members and celebrate Mother’s Day with their own children, spouses or parents. There is a reason why hundreds of drivers and thousands of members of the Lancaster community flock to the Convoy every year – it is truly an event and experience like no other!
