More Than $14,500 Raised at the First Annual Tampa Truck Pull

December 10, 2019 | 4:16pm

It was a perfect sunny day for the first-ever Tampa Truck Pull on Saturday, December 7. More than 150 people joined the teams, sponsors, and vendors at Tampa Joe’s to support this event, hosted by First Class Moving Systems. We are thrilled to announce that more than $14,500 was raised to support our hunger relief and food rescue program. The funds raised at this event will provide 35,000 meals to people facing hunger in Florida and across the U.S.

Team Ed’s Truck captured the first place prize with a time of approximately 18 seconds. There was a tie for second place that resulted in a pull off; Team Tampa ultimately won second place, and Los Toros Locos finished third. Team Pure Romance rocked their best pink pigtails, socks, and tutus. First Class Moving System provided cash prizes to the first and second place teams, and both Team Ed’s Truck and Team Tampa generously donated their cash prizes to Move For Hunger!
