Event hopes to 'pull' in money for the Miracle League

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - The Miracle League of Jonesboro and Sigma Pi fraternity will host the Fourth Annual Firetruck Pull at 11 a.m. on Saturday, April 8, at Centennial Bank Stadium at Arkansas State University.

Co-ed teams from all over Northeast Arkansas will compete to raise funds for the park, which provides entertainment geared toward kids and adults with special needs.

The facility includes a playground with 29 pieces of handicap-accessible equipment and the world's largest all-inclusive ball field. It was built in 2015 with donated funds, but still has an outstanding debt of $400,000.

Teams of up to 12 members can register by clicking here. Registration is $120 per team with all proceeds going to the Miracle League, according to a news release from the City of Jonesboro.

Last year's firetruck pull raised $1,700. Sigma Pi hopes to raise $3,000 this year.

In addition to the firetruck pull, visitors and participants can enjoy live entertainment, booths, and free food and drinks.
