With extensive help from Central Moving & Storage and GKTW, Bekins hosted its third Truck Pull fundraiser for the nonprofit in as many years, with previous events occurring in Nashville, Tenn., and Indianapolis, Ind. Each year, the event donations for GKTW increase over the previous year’s total.
- 2021 Truck Pull in Nashville, Tenn., brought in $10,000 for GKTW
- 2022 Truck Pull in Indianapolis, Ind., raised $23,000 for GKTW
- 2023 Truck Pull in Kissimmee, Fla., totaled more than $40,000 for GKTW
Once GKTW and Central Moving & Storage had the setup for the event in place, Bekins bussed 200+ participants onto the nonprofit campus to participate, volunteer and cheer during the event.
The fun in the Truck Pull is in the competition. Each of the eight teams faced two head-to-head match-ups, and
- Central Moving & Storage 1 vs. Central Moving & Storage 2
- Central Moving & Storage 3 vs. Olympia Moving & Storage
- Boerman Moving & Storage vs. New Relocation Services
- Tobias Financial vs. Palmer Associates
Finally, the two teams with the fastest scores each had one final run.
- Tobias Financial crossed the finish line in 13.6 seconds.
- Central Moving & Storage 1 managed to shave .5 seconds off the competitor’s finish for a winning time of 13.1 seconds.
Congratulations and thank you to Central Moving & Storage, our newest Truck Pull Champion!
