Info Sessions on ‘Fire Truck Pull’ at June’s ‘Relay for Life’ to be Held Monthly

Do you want to pull a fire truck? Do you and 11 friends want to pit yourself against major tonnage for a good cause?

The American Cancer Society’s Fire Truck Pull at the Relay For Life of HK will take place on Saturday, June 23, at Haddam-Killingworth High School (HKHS.)  The event is a team-building, fundraising, cancer-fighting event where teams of 12 people compete to pull the truck a designated distance in the fastest time.

You and other groups in the area are challenged to step up to the rope and show Middlesex County who can Pull For a Cure with the fastest time.

How does it work?

Teams will rally together to raise money however they see fit. The minimum amount of money that a team must raise is $1,200 (or $100 per person) to participate. All funds raised benefit the mission of the American Cancer Society to save lives, celebrate lives and lead the fight for a world free from cancer.

The winning team will receive bragging rights and a trophy.

To learn more, join the organizers on Wednesday, Jan. 31, at 6:30 p.m. at the Haddam Volunteer Firehouse Company 1, 439 Saybrook Rd, Higganum to kick off the 2018 Relay For Life/Fire Truck Pull season.

 

There will also be the traditional Relay For Life walk-a-thon on the HKHS track. The soft opening ceremony will be at 12 noon. There will be a Survivor Ceremony and dinner, luminaria and much more. Stay tuned for a full schedule of events.

Monthly meetings will be at St. James Church Parish Hall, 501 Killingworth Rd, Higganum, CT from 6:30 to 8 p.m. Meeting dates for 2018 are: February 28, March 28, April 25, May 30, June 13.
