The American Cancer Society's Fire Truck Pull For A Cure takes place on Saturday, July 29th in the Eastland Mall parking lot at 1 P.M.  According to the American Cancer Society, the event is a teambuilding, fundraising, cancer-fighting event that pits your people against major tonnage, all for a good cause.  Teams of any size compete to pull the truck a designated distance in the fastest time.

How does it work?

Teams will rally together to raise money however they see fit. The funds that are raised are managed with the American Cancer Society  and their website for the event on the team page. The minimum amount of money that a team must raise is $400 to participate.
