RoadPro® Family of Brands sponsors truck convoy for Make-A-Wish® Philadelphia, Northern Delaware & Susquehanna Valley on Mother’s Day

Palmyra, PA (April 24, 2015) – The RoadPro® Family of Brands will sponsor a convoy of approximately 400 trucks that will roll through Lancaster County, Pa., on May 10 as part of the 26th Annual Mother’s Day Truck Convoy fundraiser for Make-A-Wish Philadelphia, Northern Delaware & Susquehanna Valley.

This is the first year the RoadPro Family of Brands will be the Presenting Sponsor of the Mother’s Day Truck Convoy, the largest fundraiser for the local chapter of Make-A-Wish, which grants the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions.

“Make-A-Wish does wonderful work and sponsoring the Mother’s Day Truck Convoy is a chance to help the charity fulfill the dreams of local families contending with the illness of a child,” said Chuck White, Vice President, Brands & Marketing, DAS Companies, Inc. “We are honored to partner with them.”

The Mother’s Day Truck Convoy will be held at Burle Business Park, 1000 New Holland Ave., Lancaster, Pa., on May 10. The celebration, which begins at 8:30 a.m., includes a live auction, games, food and entertainment. The convoy will leave the business park at 1:30 p.m. and travel to Ephrata, Pa., and back, a spectacle that will be viewed by thousands who line roads and overpasses along the route.

The Mother’s Day Truck Convoy began in 1990 with a request from a boy named Matt who asked Make-A-Wish if he could ride in an 18-wheeler and talk to his sister on a CB radio. More than 40 trucks and drivers showed up to grant that wish and the Mother’s Day Truck Convoy was born. In 2003, it set the Guinness World Record for Longest Truck Convoy with 288 trucks, a record it smashed the next year with 391 vehicles. The number of trucks and drivers participating has grown every year.

“Make-A-Wish is delighted to partner with the RoadPro Family of Brands for this year’s Mother’s Day Truck Convoy, which has become one of Lancaster County’s most popular fundraisers,” said Paulette Battenfelder, Regional Executive Director, Make-A-Wish Foundation. “RoadPro’s participation will help us grow this amazing event.”
