Pulling Together for Fraser

- 4/4/2017

Minneapolis and St. Paul will settle their age-old rivalry with an epic tug-of-war across the mighty Mississippi, all for Fraser.

WCCO-TV, along with founding partners Central Roofing and Pearson’s Candy Company, is proud to announce Pulling Together, a large-scale, one-day tug-of-war across the Mississippi River. The event will raise funds and awareness for Fraser, Minnesota’s largest and most experienced provider of autism services.

On Saturday, June 10 at Hidden Falls Regional Park, some of Minnesota’s favorite organizations from each side of the river will compete against each other. Teams earn their way to the tug-of-war by raising at least $10,000 for Fraser.

In addition to the teams fundraising, WCCO is asking its viewers to donate to their favorite city. The city to raise the most money will break any tie in the tug-of-war, so donate to help your favored city win!

All funds raised for the event will benefit Fraser, Minnesota’s largest and most experienced provider of autism services. Fraser also provides services for mental health and other developmental disabilities for children and adults with special needs through healthcare, education and housing.

Pulling Together, a family-friendly event, will bring Minnesotans together for an afternoon of friendly competition, fun and giving back to our community.
