Indy Truck Pull rolls across finish line


WHEATON WORLD WIDE MOVING PUT IN THE WORK FOR OCT. 6 EVENT

Alongside hosting dozens of interstate agents for Wheaton World Wide Moving’s Sales Training on Tuesday and Wednesday and more members of the network for Hauling Bootcamp on Thursday, the Wheaton team had a busy several days in the first week of October promoting and hosting our inaugural Indy Truck Pull, a good-natured competition aiming to raise money for Give Kids The World

THANK YOU TO CORPORATE SPONSORS

Before we share more photos, video of the morning show truck pull demo, and announce the amount of money raised for GKTW, let us thank the sponsors that got us past our $20,000 goal:

INDIANAPOLIS NBC AFFILIATE WTHR FEATURED THE TRUCK PULL ON 13SUNRISE 

While the majority of the fundraising occurred on the corporate level, Wheaton needed spectators to cheer on the competing teams and buy dinner at onsite food trucks to help support the nonprofit. That’s why part of the effort to raise money for Give Kids The World included garnering publicity such as the Wednesday, Oct. 5 spots during the 4:30 to 7 am morning show on the Indy NBC affiliate.

The station showed several segments:

GETTING SET UP FOR THE INDY TRUCK PULL

Finally, Thursday evening saw a ton of people joining in to help set up and run the inaugural Indy Truck Pull. Staff set up tables and chairs, popped canopies, put together easels to hold sponsor signs, strung up banners, laid out t-shirts, gloves, and games, and so much more. 

Once things were set up and people began to arrive, more volunteers appeared to run the show, and not to be outdone, several members of the team put on their gloves and pulled the truck!

Thank you to all our volunteers and participants:

PULL THAT TRUCK

Morse Moving & Storage became champions with their winning time on the scoreboard of 15.55 seconds in the Championship round of the Indy Truck Pull

Nine teams of ten donned work gloves and yanked the truck 100 feet across the finish line, with Morse Moving & Storage and Cory Shook – State Farm coming out as the top two. In the Championship round, the moving team outpaced the insurance team by almost two seconds. Very impressive!
