Convoy For Hope – Atlantic

On Saturday, August 18, The Gear Centre and Pat’s Driveline were at the Moncton Coliseum in support of Convoy for Hope – Atlantic’s 9th annual drive for a cure.  Convoy for Hope – Atlantic brings truckers together to raise money in support of research, detection and prevention of the four most diagnosed cancers in Canada. Convoy for Hope – Atlantic is an annual event and has raised more than $250,000 since its first convoy in 2010. Come and join us in The Drive for a Cure! Despite the weather, this year’s event was a huge success with 25 registered trucks, a fire truck, an ambulance, 4 corporate sponsored vehicles, 24 CAV & support units and 17 survivors.
