World’s Largest Truck Convoy

The Truck Convoy is a bi-annual fundraiser in Joplin, Mo., for SOMO. This event is a national one-day celebration of the trucking industry, its allied partners and law enforcement all working together to raise funds for Special Olympics athletes. In 2023, the Truck Convoy raised more than $115,000 for SOMO!

The Truck Convoy is held in conjunction with the Guilty by Association Truck Show, which features demolition derby, truck and tractor pulls, monster truck jams and multiple concerts.
