LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) – Dozens of people took a massive challenge by pulling a fire truck through the center of 4th Street Live.

For the second year, the Pi Kappa Alpha Fraternity at the University of Louisville organized their Fireman's Challenge where teams competed to pull a 3-ton fire truck 25-feet as fast as they could.

The event helped raise money for the WHAS Crusade for Children.

“That’s really important to us because we emphasize serving the community and the Crusade gave us the opportunity to serve communities all around the Commonwealth and southern Indiana,” Hunter Pittman of Pi Kappa Alpha said.

The fraternity estimates the event raised about $4,000 for the Crusade.

“It’s such a great connection with the Crusade to use the fire truck and raise money for children who have special needs,” Crusade for Children CEO Dawn Lee said. “It’s a lot of fun and a great way for the young to get involved and give back.”

Organizers say plans are in the works to bring the challenge back next year.
