What: The 9th Annual Fire Truck Pull
Where: Clabber Girl Parking Lot located along 8th Street between Cherry Street and Wabash Avenue, Terre Haute, IN
When: Saturday, April 23rd from 10:00 AM - 2:00 PM
Why: Special Olympics Indiana is a nonprofit organization that provides year-round sports training and athletic competition in more than 20 Olympic-type sports. They work with children and adults with intellectual disabilities, reaching nearly 10,000 athletes across Indiana. Special Olympics Indiana is part of the international network of accredited Special Olympics Programs that reaches more than 2.5 million athletes with intellectual disabilities worldwide. We support this cause by hosting this event that includes having a Fire Truck pull contest in which teams compete to try and pull the fire truck 100 feet in the fastest amount of time.
How to get involved? If you would like to enter a team of 8-10 of your friends/coworkers/teammates to compete to pull the Fire Truck in the fastest time you may do so! Teams will be divided into three divisions: all female, co-ed, and all male. Contact Rodney Lockman at (812) 240-9212 or by email at email@example.com. Registration will be $75 per team, which includes a t-shirt for each competing member, if registered by April 9th!
If you would simply like to donate to the cause, you can do so on this website! Remember to bring your family and friends for music, games, prizes, free food, and tons of fun!
Background Information: Last year we raised over $7,000 when over 20 teams (including Clabber Girl and Care Ambulances) and over 500 people from various parts of the community came to support Special Olympics Indiana! All proceeds of this event will go towards Special Olympics Indiana.
Overall, the Fire Truck Pull will be an exciting community event in which we can all help support Special Olympics Indiana, the athletes in our community, and even the athletes throughout the state.
