The Trucks were out in full force again in East Hartford yesterday, between 4 and 6 hundred at last count. And not just trucks there were Army vehicles, police and fire vehicles and alot more. All coming together as they have for more than 20 years for the Wishes on Wheels truck convoy to benefit Make-A-Wish. The vehicles make quite the spectacle when they head down Interstates 84 and 384 raising money and awareness for the cause. But perhaps the best part is that kids and their families become the honored guest riders for the event.
This year marked the 23rd Wishes on Wheels which has to date raised 1.8 million dollars for Make A Wish and organizers hope later today to announce that yesterdays event will help hit the 2 million dollar mark.
