The Just for Kids Transportation Group is a collection of local truckers who have taken it upon themselves to help raise money for the Janeway Children’s Hospital.

Each year these volunteers from the trucking industry hold the Teddy Bear Convoy and last year they raised about $25,000. The event was started by committee member and trucker, Jon Summers, over a decade ago, and since that time the convoy has raised about $250,000 for the Janeway.

Approximately 40 truckers will drive up to the Janeway on June 5th and present the hospital with a cheque.
