Can you and your friends pull a 10+ tonne fire truck 100 feet? The Ottawa Fire Truck Pull returns to Lansdowne Park! Join us for the second annual Ottawa Fire Truck Pull to compete with Team DANTE and teams of firefighters, weight lifters, corporate employees, student groups, and more. Challenge yourself for a great cause!
On Saturday, October 19, 2019, teams of 10 will descend on Lansdowne Park, Aberdeen Square to demonstrate that they have the fortitude to pull an Ottawa Fire Services fire truck 100 feet. Teams will compete to see who can pull the truck the fastest, raise the most money for a good cause, or demonstrate the most team spirit.
Anyone can put together a team. Grab up to 9 friends, register, and raise at least $1,000 – that’s just $100 each!
100% OF THE PROCEEDS FROM THIS EVENT WILL SUPPORT EPILEPSY SERVICES IN OUR COMMUNITY
Recipient charity Epilepsy Ottawa is a not-for-profit, charitable agency dedicated to improving the quality of life for those living with epilepsy and seizure disorders and those closest to them, through support services, education, advocacy, and on-going public awareness. Epilepsy Ottawa strives to create a community where people affected by epilepsy and seizure disorders are empowered and supported to live life to the fullest, free of stigma and barriers.
Epilepsy Ottawa provides services to those affected by epilepsy or seizures in the Ottawa region, including the wider rural communities (Lanark County, Renfrew County, Prescott-Russell County, and Stormont Dundas & Glengarry Counties).
About 10,000 people in this region have epilepsy. Its impact extends beyond the individual with the diagnosis; it affects the entire family and even friends. In that light, there are tens of thousands of people in our region dealing with this neurological condition.
Let’s pull together, Ottawa!
