TAMPA, Fla. /Florida Newswire/ — Move For Hunger announced today that registration is open for the first-ever Tampa Truck Pull, presented by First Class Moving Systems. The event, in which teams of 5-10 will compete to see who can pull a moving truck 100 feet in the fastest time, will be held at Tampa Joe’s Restaurant and Sports Bar (9316 Anderson Road, Tampa, FL 33634) on Saturday, December 7, 2019 from 11 a.m. – 2 p.m.
Registration is $20 per team and can be completed at http://TampaTruckPull.com.
Proceeds from the event will benefit Move For Hunger, a national non-profit organization that has created a sustainable way for the relocation industry to reduce food waste and fight hunger.
First Class Moving Systems will provide one of their trucks for the event. As a member of Move For Hunger’s national network of relocation professionals, First Class Moving Systems encourages their customers to donate unopened, non-perishable food during the moving process and then volunteers to deliver the donations to the local food bank, free of charge.
The inaugural event will allow various community groups to come together for one specific cause, including teams of firefighters, police officers, CrossFit, Boot Camp or other athletes, corporate groups, families, and more. Community members are encouraged to attend, cheer on their favorite teams, and enjoy music, food, beer, and raffles, all in support of Move For Hunger.
“Ten teams will participate and try to put up the fastest time, with support and encouragement from the crowd,” said Christ Hunt, partner and CEO of First Class Moving Systems. “This will be a fun way to raise awareness about hunger and food waste in our community and to support a great organization, Move For Hunger.”
More than 2.8 million people in Florida, including 1 in 5 children, do not have reliable access to a sufficient quantity of affordable, nutritious food. Meanwhile, 40% of all the food in the United States is wasted. The funds raised at the Tampa Truck Pull will support Move For Hunger’s hunger relief and food rescue programs, both in Florida and nationwide.
