Paducah Big Brown Truck Pull, October 15th at Heartland Church
Of the 4 “Pull” events held in Kentucky each year, this is the ONLY one that directly supports a local delegation. The Paducah Big Brown Truck Pull directly benefits the McCracken County Special Olympics delegation. The money raised through this event provides funding for all McCracken County athletes to compete in basketball, bowling, softball, cheerleading, as well as track and field. McCracken County athletes compete year-round on the local, regional and state level, travelling to tournaments in Bowling Green, Richmond and Louisville.
Teams of fifteen must raise a minimum of $750 to participate and all proceeds help Special Olympics Kentucky provide year-round training and athletic competition to more than 11,000 athletes with intellectual disabilities across the state of Kentucky.
