A recent CBS Evening News report highlighted the selflessness of hundreds of truckers who came out to celebrate the birthday of a special needs truck enthusiast.

Last weekend, more than a thousand truck drivers attended the “18 Wheels For Bubba” birthday celebration for Dakota “Bubba” Cadd, who suffers from cerebral palsy and Dandy Walker syndrome.

While the news of the event was widely shared both online and offline in the trucking community, it actually garnered serious attention from various mainstream media outlets this week, including WKOW, NBC 15, and WISC-TV3.

Coverage of the heartwarming event even made it on CBS Evening News with Jeff Glor. The video report summarizes how the trucking community responded to a viral Facebook post about Bubba in a way that no one could have predicted.
