: In 1990, a young man named Matt requested a wish to ride in an 18 wheeler and speak to his sister on a CB radio. Over forty trucks and drivers showed up to grant the wish and the Mother’s Day Truck Convoy was conceived.
For the past 28 years, the event has been held on Mother’s Day in Lancaster, PA. Over the years the number of trucks has grown to over 500 with over 100 wish children as passengers riding each year. The event draws approximately 5,000 people to Burle Business Park to see the trucks, attend an auction, play games and enjoy delicious local food. Another 25,000 people line the 26 mile route to cheer for the trucks and wish children as they pass by. This year, our goal for the 29th Annual Make-A-Wish Mother’s Day Truck Convoy is to raise enough funds to grant local wishes!
