Fallen Officers Memorial MRAP Pull Will Benefit St. Jude Children's Research Hospital

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (localmemphis.com) - Think you have what it takes to pull an 18-ton vehicle with nothing but a few friends and a rope? That's the goal of the "Fallen Officers Memorial MRAP Pull" to benefit St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.

Teams of eight will attempt to pull the massive MRAP vehicle on June 2nd.

Entry is open to the first 20 teams to raise a minimum donation of $500. Organizers say it shouldn't be hard for teams to come up with the entry fee.

“I was able to raise $500 for St. Jude by myself when I ran the marathon 2 years ago,” said Byron Haynes with the Memphis Police Department. “That’s why I figured 8 people could easily raise $500. More would be great, but a minimum of 5. Please.”

The deadline to register is May 31st. CLICK HERE to learn more.
