Pulling Together for Fraser
Minneapolis and St. Paul settled their age-old rivalry with an epic tug-of-war across the mighty Mississippi, all for Fraser.
WCCO-TV, along with founding partners Central Roofing and Pearson’s Candy Company, hosted Pulling Together, a large-scale, one-day tug-of-war across the Mississippi River, on June 10 at Hidden Falls Regional Park. All funds raised the event supported Fraser. The family-friendly event brought Minnesotans together for an afternoon of friendly competition, fun and giving back to the community.
Twenty teams, consisting of some of Minnesota’s favorite organizations and companies from each side of the river, competed in the tug-of-war competition. See teams, winners and event coverage here: http://minnesota.cbslocal.com/pullingtogether/
In total, the event raised more than $212,000 for Fraser! We would like to extend a big thank you to WCCO-TV, all of the teams who raised money and participated, and everyone who made a donation. Your contributions will help many families with special needs in our community receive the crucial services they need.
