Third Annual Special Olympics El Salvador Fire Truck Pull

By Guisele Calderón

Seven companies in El Salvador showed their support for Special Olympics in a new way. The teams competed to see which could pull a fire truck faster than all the others. The Special Olympics El Salvador Fire Truck Pull on May 25th involved seven teams of 12 people pulling a seven-ton fire truck 100 meters as fast as possible. Each team was cheered on by their families, friends and colleagues. First place went to team of DHL with a time of 45.84 seconds, second place went to team DIGICEL 2 with a time of 47.25 seconds and third place went to Pacific Paradise Hotel with a time of 48. 35 seconds.
