Ottawa Fire Truck Pull 2020
Let's pull together, Ottawa!
This fall, teams of 10 firefighters will gather 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.
This event is presented in collaboration with Ottawa Fire Services.
Who can enter a team?
Any group of firefighters can put together a team. Just grab up to 9 firefighter friends, register, and raise at least $1,000 – that’s just $100 each!
To register your firefighter team, visit ottawafiretruckpull.com/register.
Non-firefighter teams can sponsor their favourite firefighters and help them win! We’re calling you the “fan teams”. Fan teams will help their favourite firefighters and compete for prizes themselves.
The Best Team Spirit competition will include an online component this year. Fan team participation can mean prizes for you and a chance for your sponsored team to win Best Team Spirit.
The more money fan teams raise for their selected firefighter team, the greater the chances firefighters can win Most Charitable Team. Members of the fan team that raise the most money have a chance to win a prize!
To start your fan team, go to your favourite team's page, click on "join this team", and follow the directions. This will set up your participant page. Then you'll be all set to start fundraising, post photos, etc.
Tag us on social media and show us your team spirit.
Recipient Charity: Epilepsy Ottawa is a not-for-profit, charitable agency dedicated to creating a community where people affected by epilepsy are empowered and support to live life to the fullest, free of stigma and barriers.
This year, funds raised will help Epilepsy Ottawa bring the program UPLIFT to Eastern Ontario. UPLIFT is an evidence-based program proven to reduce depression in people who struggle with both depression and epilepsy – even 6 months after the program concludes. About 1/3 of people with epilepsy also struggle with depression, thus the program has the potential to make a significant impact.
