On Sunday, September 23rd, Canton-based moving company, Humboldt Storage and Moving, held their 7th Annual Humboldt Truck Pull to benefit Special Olympics Massachusetts at the Irish Cultural Centre in Canton.
Over $13,350 was raised by Truck Pull participants and spectators. Since its inception, the event has raised almost $100,000 and seeks to continually raise funds as well as awareness for Special Olympics Massachusetts. The funds raised help support more than 13,000 individuals with intellectual disabilities who participate in Special Olympics Massachusetts year-round programming.
At the event, 7 teams of 10 individuals had the chance to pull a full sized Humboldt tractor trailer, box truck, and pack truck. Teams came from all walks of life including team members from Humboldt, RSM, Horgan’s Heroes, Citrin Cooperman, Iron Addicts, and Fast Enterprises. The team with the lowest pull average is the winner. This year’s winners, the Iron Addicts, upset the previously undefeated Horgan’s (Hajjar’s) Heroes.
The Humboldt Truck Pull also featured a FREE “Touch A Truck” family friendly exhibition and great local raffles prizes. The Touch-a-Truck exhibition provided a unique opportunity for children to explore and climb on vehicles of all types – public service, emergency, utility, construction, transportation, and delivery – all in one place! This year our “Touch A Truck” exhibition also features classic cars thanks to the Spindles Auto Club out of Weymouth.
