Special Olympics Truck Convoy



Special Olympics Largest Truck Convoy 2018
​I work with Northern Fiber Terminal in Sheet Harbour Nova Scotia day to day and I drive part time for Atlantic Tiltload as a part time adventure. Over the past two years, my wife, Rebecca and I have been participating and driving in the largest truck convoy for Special Olympics here in Nova Scotia., My son, Thomas joined us last year, (2017). I achieved the recognition of being in the top 5 fundraisers for the convoy last year.

This year like all athletes, I am going for the GOLD!

My goal is to become Lead Truck of the 200 trucks registered. I aspire to guide us throughout the Convoy route with the grill of my truck proudly sporting the LEAD TRUCK banner for this life altering event. In addition, like most years, I carry an athlete with me to wave to the crowds from the passenger seat and share in the energy of the day. Their smiles say it all!
With your help and support, this goal can be achieved. For every dollar I raise, Atlantic Tiltload will match the pledge .
I would like to ask for your support by sponsoring me, for the Special Olympic’s Largest Truck Convoy 2018 held on Sept 22 2018

Email transfers can be sent to Tickets on the draw for one night and breakfast for two at Liscombe Lodge, are currently on sale at Scotiabank and for the month of March, they will match our sales! Please help us reach LEAD TRUCK.

Friends of Taylor Head Park Activities


The Friends of Taylor Head Provincial Park (FOTHP) organization offers a program of interpreted and guided outings and other events that we hope will enhance the experience of park users. This initiative originates from our strong attachment to Taylor Head Provincial Park and our passion for the natural world.

The guides and interpreters for all activities are volunteers. We have limited resources in terms of the scope and level of assistance that we are able to offer to participants who cannot safely participate without special attention or supervision. In particular, if you have mobility, endurance, or cognitive limitations we ask that you read the program details very carefully to ensure that the activity you choose is right for you. The program includes both easy and demanding events.

All activities are FREE.

If you would like to support the organization and the work we do, purchase a Friends of Taylor Head membership. Annual membership fees are Family $20 and Individual $10.

You need sturdy footwear such as walking shoes, hiking sneakers, or hiking boots. Street shoes or sandal-type footwear with open toes and heels are not suitable for these rough hiking trails. If you have questions about the conditions of the trails, just give us a call.

We have graded our hiking trails as EASY or MODERATE for hikes under 3 kilometers, and DIFFICULT for hikes over 3 kilometers, such as the Headland Trail. Most outings exceed three hours, so do not forget to bring drinking water, something to eat, and appropriate outdoor clothing.
