The 8th annual Convoy For Hope – Atlantic is bringing together Atlantic Canadians to celebrate the great service of the trucking industry and supporting our communities in the fight against Cancer.
This year’s event will raise awareness and funds to combat Breast, Colon, Lung, and Prostate Cancer. Our event is unique in so many ways;
– It is rare that a single event supports more than one cancer. Our team has chosen the top four that most affect Atlantic Canadians, and unfortunately those numbers of incidence and mortality are the highest of all the provinces in Canada.
– All of our events are organized and run solely by volunteers. We guarantee that less than 10% of funds received will be used for essential expenses; insurance, licensing, web domains, etc. This provides more than $0.90 on the dollar to be directed straight to the cause.
– Of the 4 cancers we represent Colon & lung receive the last funding in Canada. In-fact we are the largest event east of Toronto that contributes to the awareness and fight against lung Cancer.
This years Convoy is gaining incredible momentum. We are maintaining the new route selected last year (previously from Salisbury Irving Big Stop to the Aulac, Irving Big Stop) for the Convoy to travel from the Salisbury Irving Big Stop through the city of Moncton, and coming together at the Moncton Coliseum for awards and to celebrate the survivors.
A bar-B-Q hosted by Scotiabank – matching proceeds, Live Music from 18 again, a live & silent auction, 50/50 draws, a $6000 Travel voucher raffle, Face painting, Special guests Lightning McQueen & Tow Mater (courtesy of Georges Deck & Recovery, PEI), and a live demonstration from the Moncton Fire Department.
We are anticipating a fantastic turn out from the community and are looking forward to sharing the hope of a cancer free future.
We are changing the conversation, raising awareness, contributing funds to the research, early detection and prevention, and supporting those affected.
