About Us

Convoy For Kids Sydney Inc. was started in 1992 by a small group of dedicated people from the transport and associated industries who had a desire to help sick children.

Today, 31 years later, we are still a volunteer committee who spend time to put together one special day, not only as a fundraiser but a family day for all.

Drivers and owner drivers, travel from all parts of NSW with their families to participate in this great event each year. It is a spectacular sight to see 500 or more trucks, in a convoy supporting the event. Funds are raised on the day by truck entries, sales of food and merchandise, major raffle, donations and our giant auction.

Convoy for Kids Sydney Inc. currently have sponsorship opportunities available for this year’s event. The high, profile nature of “The Convoy” offers the corporate sponsor excellent exposure for it’s company, both in Sydney and rural NSW and creates a positive Company image within the community.
