We’re ready for the first-ever Heroes Pull! This is the ultimate man versus machine challenge. This extreme and unique event pits teams of up to 10, plus one athlete, against a Sioux Falls Fire Truck and Minnehaha County Sheriff’s Department SWAT BearCat; all while helping to raise funding and awareness for Special Olympics South Dakota! To get your team signed up, please click here. 

When registering, teams can choose from the following 6 divisions:

  1. Public Safety: at least half of the team members are public safety employees
  2. Fitness/Gym
  3. Open: general public 
  4. High School/College
  5. Special Olympian
  6. Youth (Sioux Falls Police Pickup)
If you haven’t done a Pull event, you’re probably wondering, “how does it work?”. Participants create a team of up to 10, with each puller raising $50 ($500 per team). If you have less than 10 individuals on your team, your team still needs to raise the $500! 
The event will be held at the Special Olympics Unify Center on September 29th!
Awards will be given out to the fastest average pull in each of the 6 divisions and an overall Grand Champion trophy will be given to the fastest team of the day.
