Tony’s Convoy for Hope of a cancer cure in Alberta Sunday

| July 22, 2011

The man it’s named after wasn’t a trucker, as notes Canadian Stouffville (Alberta) Sun-Tribune editor and columnist Jim Mason in the story he wrote about Tony’s Convoy for Hope, published July 15. But thanks to his in-law oil-tank haulers, his “is is a big name in Western Canadian trucking circles,” as Mason writes.

Rossi (pictured) passed away in September 2010, after a rallying convoy was organized by his aforementioned oil-hauling brother-in-law Tom Jack and his wife, Janet, to benefit the Alberta Cancer Foundation in July. Rossi had been in a battle with the disease for five years, Mason writes. It included 35 trucks last year and raised a total $17,768. This year, convoy organizers have set a goal of 50 trucks and $20,000.
