A 500-truck convoy has been scheduled for Mother's Day in Lancaster, Pa., to raise funds for the Make-A-Wish Foundation and take aim at a world record.
The annual convoy has been raising funds for 26 years for the Make-A-Wish Philadelphia, Northern Delaware & Susquehanna Valley, a charity that grants wishes to children with life-threatening medical conditions.
Last year, nearly 400 trucks from around the country, many of them carrying Make-A-Wish kids, rolled through central Pennsylvania as spectators lined roads and overpasses to cheer.
The Netherlands now holds the Guinness Book of World Records title for "World’s Longest Truck Convoy," but the group hopes to win it back this year by drawing 500 trucks. The Mother’s Day Convoy will be from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday, May 8, in Lancaster, Pa.
The event is sponsored by the RoadPro family of brands. For more information or to participate, visit this website.
