On Saturday morning more than 50 trucks convoyed through Marshfield, Wisconsin in honor of a local teen, Dylan Rottscheit.
Dylan is diagnosed with neurofibromatosis, a disorder that prevents him from accomplishing his lifelong dream of becoming a truck driver.
Many truck drivers throughout the Midwest heard Dylan’s story and wanted to show some support for his passion for truck driving. The drivers organized a surprise convoy in honor of Dylan.
Bob Ganski, a truck driver from Bevent, said, “We had it set up that his mom would act like her car had broken down or she was meeting somebody so Dylan didn’t really know why they were sitting there.”
When Dylan arrived at the site of the convoy he was nothing but smiles.
“It was really cool to see how people can easily just get together,” Jonathan Rottscheit, Dylan’s younger brother, said.
“I had no idea who Dylan was, I had no idea who his family was,” Ganski told WXOW. “It was just something that I could do to give back.”
Thank you to all the drivers that were a part of this convoy for a cause.
