A father-and-son team is preparing to lead a convoy of supporters.

This year's event may not be occurring in the exact same way, but hoards of trucks will still be displaying their support for Special Olympics Manitoba. A smaller team of drivers and no large meet up are the event's largest changes. 

Luke Desaulniers and his father Dan, a truck driver of 13 years, will be leading a group on Saturday morning. 

Throughout the week, other drivers can join, logging their travels. 

Luke's mom Tracy says sports and trucks hold a special place in her son's heart, and the combination of the two fits perfectly. 

"We have been involved with Special Olympics for about four years now," Tracy says in a Facebook video. 

Raising money for Special Olympics Manitoba, Luke and others are using the annual convoy to raise awareness. 

“It helps raise much-needed funds for Luke and other children and adults that benefit from the amazing opportunities that Special Olympics provides to participate in sports," Tracy says in a Special Olympics Manitoba release.

This is the convoy's 13th year.
