Join in the fun by putting together a team to pull the biggest, pinkest thing we could find -
the Charlotte Fire Department’s Pink Lady Fire Truck!

At this year's Fire Truck Pull, Kiki and Cal Scovel present a check for $1,000 to Cops 4 the Cure in memory of their son, CMPD Officer Carey Scovel. Carey was a 26 year old officer when he was diagnosed with non-hodgkins lymphoma. He had chemo and a bone marrow transplant, returning to work at CMPD for a brief time before he passed away in 2012. Carey loved serving the Charlotte community along with his fellow officers at CMPD; Cops 4 theCure is grateful to the Scovels for honoring Carey's memory is such a meaningful way.

This event is put on by CMPD’s “Cops 4 the Cure” with support from CFD’s “Fight to Extinguish”- both aimed squarely at supporting those that are battling cancer and other life threatening diseases.

General Information:
Teams will consist of 8 members.  Teams will compete in one of 3 categories:  Male, Female, or Co-ed (Co-ed teams must have at least 2 females).  All team members will be required to sign a waiver on site the day of the pull before being allowed to participate.  Each team should designate a team captain.

Each team will be given 2 chances to pull the truck, with their fastest “pull” time being the keeper. Teams will be broken into waves of 3. Each pull is 100 feet in length and will be timed from the horn to crossing the line. Each team will perform their first pull, then their second in their assigned wave.

We will have lots of activities for the kids in your lives, so drag them along for the pull.
There will also be an area with vendors, music, and other sorts of mayhem.

The cost for each team is $160 with all proceeds benefitting “Cops 4 the Cure”, a non-profit organization formed to support those fighting for their lives as the result of cancer or some other life threatening disease.
