Alexandria’s first ever tow truck pull took place Saturday, Aug. 24, raising nearly $10,000 for the Douglas County Car Car Program.

The event, featuring a large tow truck being pulled back and forth, closed off 6th Avenue between Broadway Street and Irving Street from 9 a.m. – 2 p.m.

Six teams of up to 12 members made a donation to the program and then pulled the tow truck, with a car on its flatbed, 60 feet across the finish line in a timed event. Teams consisted of co-workers, organization members, families, friends and even random people that gathered together.
