Dart participates in Special Olympics Truck Convoy

Posted: October 15, 2021

Inclusion, integrity, and stewardship are three of Dart’s company values. Those principles are evident in the work that we do every day, but this month, a group of Dart drivers went the extra mile and took part in the 17th Annual Truck Convoy to raise money for the Special Olympics Minnesota!  

Special Olympics Minnesota offers sports training and national and international competitions for people of all ages with intellectual disabilities. After taking part in a Law Enforcement Torch Run and recognizing the powerful impact the Special Olympics has made on his life and the lives of others, Norm Schneiderman, a police corporal, created the world’s largest truck convoy to raise money for the Special Olympics. Dart has participated for years.

Truck drivers of all kinds (semi, fire, etc.) met at Running Acres Casino in Columbus, MN, on Oct. 9 to join athletes and their families on a pre-determined route with law enforcement escorts. Over a dozen Dart drivers in Minnesota registered this year to raise funds for Special Olympics athletes in the state. One driver even showed off one of our military wrapped trucks!

“We’ve got a really great turnout,” one Dart associate said at the event. “It’s a great cause and we’re happy to be here supporting them.”

The two-day celebration allows Special Olympics athletes, their families and friends, law enforcement officers, companies and agencies involved in the trucking industry to celebrate and spread awareness for Special Olympics Minnesota. The organization has also recognized the truck convoy to thank the trucking industry for its continued support of its athletes.

On top of caring for our Special Olympic athletes, our veterans and our associates, Dart offers CDL-A truck drivers top pay, great home time options, 98% no-touch freight, full benefits and more – it’s the Dart advantage. Visit work4dart.com to drive for a carrier that you can be proud of.
