CHEYENNE, Wyo. — Local law enforcement personnel and truck drivers will be teaming up later this month for a convoy to benefit Special Olympics Wyoming and its athletes.

A yearly event held internationally across different cities and in Wyoming since 2005, the convoy will start at 9 a.m. Sept. 24 and will traverse along a route that starts and ends at the Wyoming Department of Transportation building at 5300 Bishop Blvd.

The public is invited to attend and support the event.

From the department office, the convoy will continue southbound onto Interstate 25 and take Exit 7 onto College Avenue. It will then drive south onto Yellowstone Road to Central Avenue and then take that back to the original location.

Trucking companies and drivers are able to sign up to participate in the convoy (either in person or virtually) at a rate of $125 per truck. More than $75,000 has been raised to support Special Olympics Wyoming since the convoy tradition began, per a Special Olympics Wyoming news release Thursday afternoon.
