The history of Convoy for Kids…
The very first Convoy for Kids was held in August 1993. The idea came from Adelaide truck driver Colin Burford, who had heard about a similar event being held interstate and thought it would be great to bring it to Adelaide.
The inaugural event took three months to organise, with the original organising committee made up of staff from Novita (then the Crippled Children’s Association), the Transport Worker’s Union, the Lions Club of Elizabeth, Elizabeth City Centre Management, SAPOL and Colin Burford.
The committee had no idea how successful this new event would be – and had such an amazing surprise when more than 400 rigs turned up to take 200 children for the ‘ride of a lifetime’ from Kurralta Park Shopping Centre to Elizabeth City Centre! Thousands of families also lined the route and enjoyed the carnival atmosphere, helping the event to raise an incredible $31,000.
Today, Novita’s Convoy for Kids is the largest charity truck convoy of its type in the world – and the event is still organised by a passionate committee dedicated to giving Novita’s children a truly magical day out. All funds raised from the event help Novita to continue supporting these incredible kids well after the excitement of Convoy is over.
