Fire truck pull supports Special Olympics in Central Texas

Williamson County

Central Texans came together today to flex some muscles and take part in some friendly competition to benefit the Special Olympics of Texas.

Several teams competed to see who could pull a 55,000-pound fire truck in the shortest amount of time.

“It’s just a lot of fun. And it’s a great way to get out of the house, turn off the video games and have a great time with some new friends,” said Megan Close, who is the mother of a Special Olympics hopeful.

Each team raised at least $360 to enter the competition, and all the money raised will benefit nearly 4,000 Special Olympics athletes in Central Texas.
