It’s a traffic jam that locals in Adelaide may actually welcome. The Novita Children’s Services Convoy for Kids event is back after a five year hiatus and will take place in the CBD on November 2.

More than 60 trucks of various sizes have so far registered to take part. They’ll complete a 7km circuit in convoy, taking children with disabilities and their siblings on a big rig ride of a lifetime.

The convoy will culminate with the Convoy Carnival, with live entertainment, food and drink, to be held in the South Parklands from 9.30am until 2pm.

"Convoy for Kids was started more than 20 years ago by Novita and a group of dedicated people from the transport industry, who had a desire to help children with disabilities," Novita CEO Glenn Rappensberg says.

"Funds raised will help us to work with children and families as well as develop important infrastructure and implement the latest innovations in clinical practice."

CMV Group managing director Paul Crawford says the automotive dealership chain is excited to sponsor the returning event.

"We’re hoping truckies from all over South Australia will join in to help raise money for Novita. The organisation does amazing work with kids across the state," he says.

South Australian truck drivers and owners are urged to register for the Convoy.
