It’s Outright’s 2022 Fire Truck Pull, and we are BACK – and LIVE! Join our community of LGBTQ+ folks and dearest allies who meet challenge with power, joy… and costumes!
We’ll be Pulling on Church Street, high noon on Saturday, October 1!
WHAT IS THE FIRE TRUCK PULL?
This is our chance to show LGBTQ+ youth that we pull with them, each and every day. We need to raise $125,000 to make all of our work with, for, and by youth possible.
The fundraising portion of this event is a peer-to-peer fundraiser. Create or join a team (or learn more here), then build your fundraising page. Here’s where the peer-to-peer comes in: let folks know why you’re pulling, and ask them to support your Pull. Every $ you raise counts towards your team’s total.
Once your team raises a minimum of $3,000, you are officially entered into the live event on Saturday, Oct 1! At high noon, teams pull a fully-loaded fire truck up the top block of Church Street in Burlington. Costumes are highly encouraged, as is all the team spirit and queer joy you can muster!
WHO CAN COMPETE?
You compete as a team. Your team can have as many members as you like fundraising on behalf of your team. You then choose either 12 people (Sporty Class) or as many folx as you’d like (Spirit Class) to be on your Pull team.
