Teams will be Pulling for Hospice on June 11 as teams put their leg and arm muscles to work to pull a fire truck to benefit Beloit Regional Hospice.
The event is set for 11 a.m.—3 p.m. on June 11 in the parking lot of the Ironworks campus, 690 Third St. This marks the second year for the Pulling for Hospice event. The first event was held in September of 2021.
Teams of eight to 10 people will be given the Herculean task of pulling a fire truck 50 feet in the shortest amount of time. The competition is a double elimination bracket, meaning teams must lose twice before being eliminated. Teams will pull a decommissioned Beloit Fire Department engine. The fee to enter a team is $250.
