BOSTON, Sept. 22, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Olympia Moving & Storage, an interstate agent of Wheaton World Wide Moving, is sending representatives to Nashville next month for an unusual fundraiser. There will be a starting line and a finish line, but participants not only travel a distance much shorter than five kilometers; they also work with a team to pull a 30-foot truck along with them!
"A truck pull is such a perfect fundraising event for a group with our talents," said Mark Kirschner, CEO of Wheaton World Wide Moving. "The most recognizable symbol of a moving company is its trucks – so we're putting a competitive spin to our trucks and letting that fun-loving spirit do good for our two favorite nonprofits: Give Kids The World (GKTW) and Move For Hunger."
Several teams will race in multiple match-ups to pull a moving truck 100 feet across Lot R at Nissan Stadium, home of the Tennessee Titans.
"Olympia Moving & Storage is proud to maintain relationships with nonprofit and charitable foundations," said Michael Gilmartin, founder of Olympia Moving & Storage. "Whenever we have a chance to support missions like these – GKTW allows children with critical illnesses and their families make fun family memories and Move For Hunger delivers food to those experiencing hunger – there's not much to think about. We're happy to help."
