Arvadans test strength to raise funds for Special Olympics Colorado

Posted

Seven teams tested their strength Sept. 29 at the fourth annual Fire Truck Pull, a joint fundraiser for Special Olympics Colorado hosted by the Arvada Fire and Arvada Police departments.

Each year the two departments have a friendly competition to see who will have the fastest time. Last year, Arvada Fire took the trophy, but this year, with a time of 8.22 seconds, Arvada Police took the trophy back. The quickest time though, went to the co-ed team from CrossFit Arvada who completed the truck pull in 8.08 seconds.

“We do it for the fun of it and to support the Special Olympics,” said Karen Spaulding, who pulled with the all female team from CrossFit Arvada. The gym put three teams in the competition. Applewood CrossFit and Strong Bodies Fitness also participated.
