Fire truck pull raises over $31,000 for United Way

Energetic City Roller Derby Association was one of the teams participating in the Fire Truck Pull previously.

FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – Centennial Park was packed for the 6th annual United Way Fire Truck Pull Saturday in Fort St. John.

Teams of up to 10 people worked to pull a Fort St. John Fire Truck 50 feet as fast as possible.  The fast team once again this year was the team from Progress Energy.


Teams collected donations for the United Way and the event raised over $31,000.  The total raised is down slightly from 2015 when the event raised $37,000.

Participants and spectators were also encouraged to bring a donation for the Fort St. John Salvation Army.  Below are just a few photos and video from the day.
