THE Greater Geelong community was out in full force for the fight against cancer during this year’s Camp Quality Convoy Geelong.

Camp Quality general manager of revenue Sandie Hall said more than 200 Camp Quality children and their families attended Sunday’s convoy event, which started and finished at Beckley Park in North Geelong.

“At Camp Quality, we’re overwhelmed by the generosity of the community here in Geelong and across Victoria,” Ms Hall said.

“We’ve raised over $200,000 which is a mammoth effort and a true testament to the trucking community.

“We had around 200 Camp Quality kids and their families come along to Convoy Geelong on Sunday.

“Being able to give the kids a break from cancer and introduce them to this wonderful world of people who care so much about them was really special.”


The Geelong Convoy has two parts. The line of trucks and the escort of motorcycles.


As of Tuesday this week, the Camp Quality Convoy Geelong had raised $207,920, surpassing its $180,000 fundraising goal thanks to 198 individual donors and 38 teams.
