Can you pull a 55,000 lb fire truck?
NEDERLAND -Imagine pulling a 55,000 pound fire truck. That's what southeast Texans did raising money for the Special Olympics.
Teams at Jack Brooks Regional airport competed to see who could pull a Fire truck the fastest.
Contestants mustered all their strength to pull the truck 50 feet.
Some teams did it in under 10 seconds, some a little longer.
But everyone agreed the real winner- was the Special Olympics.
Not everybody has the income or financial stability to be able to participate in something like that and we just want to be able to help them out in any way we can.
