World’s Largest Truck Convoys for Special Olympics rolled last weekend in several locations.

A convoy of 106 trucks began and finished at 4 State Trucks in Joplin, Mo., said owner Bryan Martin. The convoy raised $10,000 for Special Olympics.

More than 70 trucks turned out for a 22-mile convoy route on I-80 and I-57 near Tinley Park, Ill.

Convoys for Special Olympics are held across the U.S. and Canada during September and October.
