Driving Hope: HERD Joins Forces With Local Truckers to Support Special Olympics Manitoba

Spreading awareness and fueling dreams…


Life at HERD is busy, as each department works around the clock to manufacture top-tier products that define the transportation industry. But amidst production schedules, crafting new designs, and quality checks, HERD holds steadfast to the importance of giving back to the community where we live. That’s why our team was excited to team up with more than 75 professional drivers and trucking companies for the Special Olympics Manitoba Truck Ride.


The September 9th event…

was hosted by the Manitoba Trucking Association and had hundreds of people in attendance, including a truck sponsored by HERD. Together, they celebrated the accomplishments of Special Olympics athletes and raised money to support their year-round programming. By actively participating in the event, HERD reaffirmed its commitment to creating a positive impact not only for drivers on the road but also within the local community.



Help on the Highway

After breakfast at Grand Pointe Community Centre, the trucks departed as a convoy around the city of Winnipeg’s perimeter. As the convoy of trucks paraded through Winnipeg’s scenic routes, the excitement of the Special Olympics athletes was palpable. They displayed their medals, told stories about their events, and got the opportunity to take an up-close look at the inside of the HERD truck. Reflecting on the event, HERD driver Raj Singh commended the exceptional organization of the volunteers, underscoring the seamless coordination that made the event a success.



Commitment to Community

“Since its founding in 2003, HERD has always done everything we can to give back to the community around Winnipeg, said Marc Daudet, CEO of HERD.. “The opportunity to participate in this year’s Truck Ride and help support an incredible organization like Special Olympics Manitoba is not just a privilege but a reflection of our core values and a chance to drive positive change where it matters most.”

The Manitoba Trucking Association said that donations from the event are still rolling in but that they were well on their way to reaching their $50,000 fundraising goal. HERD remains dedicated to continuing the tradition of giving back, ensuring that organizations like Special Olympics Manitoba continue to receive the vital support they need.
