Wollongong police representatives joined i98FM breakfast hosts Marty Haynes and Bianca Dye at the launch of this year's Camp Quality Convoy at Port Kembla yesterday.
The convoy will be held on Sunday, November 17, and will see Wollongong police take part for the first time. Police will be entering several specialist vehicles including their water cannon, the Bearcat armoured vehicle, rescue trucks and specialist motorcycles.
The convoy is now in its ninth year, with organisers hoping the 2013 event will be as well attended as last year's, which featured 764 trucks and 926 motorbikes.
The 2012 convoy raised $1,034,921.54 for Camp Quality, which provides assistance to children with cancer and their families.
In total the convoy has raised $3.2 million since the inaugural event in 2005.
The convoy will leave from Illawarra Coal's West Cliff Colliery on Appin Road at 8am and follow a route that will take them down Mount Ousley, through Warrawong, past Stockland Shellharbour and on to the Croome Road Sporting Complex in Albion Park Rail.
