Convoy for the Cure
Lockhart Truck Center was proud to sponsor and be a participant in the 2010 Atlantic Convoy for the Cure.
The event was held on October 9, 2010 with the goal of raising $100,000 for the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation. Organizers hoped to have 100 trucks participate in a convoy between Salisbury and Aulac, New Brunswick.
Our truck was driven by Sheila Willams, who is a full time driver for a local construction company. She got us involved with the cause and we thank her for all her efforts.
