NORTH LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - An international effort to support the Special Olympics hit the road on Saturday.
The world's Largest Truck Convoy is helping an organization that touches thousands of lives.
On Saturday, companies across central Arkansas and law enforcement agencies joined the cause to raise funds for more than 15,000 Arkansas special athletes. For 30 miles, trucking companies convoyed their way across town. More than 60 trucks participated.
"It's just an important time for everyone to come together," said Terri Weir, executive director of the Arkansas Special Olympics. "And to know how important Special Olympics is to every community."
Last year, more than 1,000 truckers in the United States and Canada joined the cause. They helped raised more than a million dollars.
