Annual Midland Truck Pull a Success in Greater Moncton
The competition was fierce, but two teams emerged as champions at the 3rd annual Pulling for the United Way truck pull on September 16 in front of an energetic crowd on Main Street in downtown Moncton, New Brunswick.
In the High School division, Moncton High School overpowered defending champions Harrison Trimble to bring home the championship in a battle of the area’s high schools. In the corporate challenge, Maritime-Ontario defeated Midland in the final heat. But the community was the real winner as the truck pull raised over $10,000 for the United Way of Greater Moncton and Southeastern New Brunswick.
The annual truck pull, which is quickly becoming a fan favourite on downtown Moncton’s event calendar, has raised more than $35,000 for the United Way in its first three years.
“The success of this event is thanks to the support of the City of Moncton, 91.9 The Bend, the United Way, Midland Transport, the organizing committee and the countless volunteers who bring this event together. It is a true community effort,” said Wayne McDonald, Vice President of Corporate Relations. “We thank all teams for participating this year and look forward to seeing them again next year!”
