i98fm Illawarra Convoy & Illawarra Community Foundation
i98FM’s Illawarra Convoy has been a much-anticipated community event on the Illawarra calendar since it’s inception in 2005. The i98FM Illawarra Convoy is the largest truck convoy in the Southern Hemisphere, and one of the largest regional one day fundraising events in Australia. Our Convoy has also received national recognition winning 10 Annual Australian Radio and Commercial Awards for Best Community Service Project.
The final tally for i98FM’s Illawarra Convoy was announced with i98 Breakfast Show hosts Marty Haynes, Christie Hayes and Ryan Cram. The Convoy which was held on Sunday November 17, raised an astounding $2,760,974.25
The day saw 753 trucks and 913 motorbikes travel over 70 kilometres from Illawarra Coal’s West Cliff Colliery at Appin, through the streets of the Illawarra, to finish up at Shellharbour Airport. The Convoy arrived for a huge free family fun day, featuring live entertainment from The Hoodoo Gurus, The Veronicas, Jayne Denham local band Swells and The Yatcon FMX Freestyle Motocross riders.
