Pull on April 8 for
Curing Kids Cancer

Gather 10 of your strongest friends, family or co-workers to play the ultimate tug of war with a 55,000 lb. fire truck and to help raise funds and awareness for childhood cancer cures. 

On April 8, Curing Kids Cancer & The Columbia Fire Department are hosting the 4th Annual Fire Truck Pull at the Columbia Fire Department & Museum at 1800 Laurel Street Columbia, SC. Teams will see who can pull a fire truck in the fastest amount of time!

Pull for a special child!

 

We are asking each team to pull for either someone in your life affected by pediatric cancer or we can assign you a child to pull for in honor or memory! Teams are encouraged to dress up according to the child for whom they are pulling. i.e. tutus, camo, sports teams, etc.

Teams will consist of 10 people (two optional substitutes if needed).

All female or 18 years & under old teams are allowed to have 12 people pull. Parents must sign a waiver for each participant under the age of 18.

Registration

Registration is $200 per team. Each competing team member will receive a T-shirt. Register your team today to get started. Then, set up your own fundraiser website
