The Ronald McDonald House will host their annual Fire Truck Pull competition on Saturday, Oct. 1 at Seville Quarter in downtown Pensacola. Teams of 20 people will compete to pull an 82,000- pound fire truck 50 feet in the least amount of time for bragging rights and a team trophy.
Groups, clubs, or businesses who are interested in competing can contact the Ronald McDonald House for fundraising and registration materials. Teams from various local businesses, organizations, and schools will be competing against each other. There will also be several teams comprised of emergency first responders, including firefighters, police officers, and sheriffs.
The event also includes children’s activities, arts and crafts, and games that are fun for the whole family. Sponsorship opportunities are also available. Last year’s event helped raise more than $34,000 for the Ronald McDonald House. All of the proceeds go to Ronald McDonald House Charities of Northwest Florida.
