Get ready to flex some muscles for a good cause.

United Way is hosting Vernon’s inaugural bus pull June 10 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Wholesale Club parking lot.

“Do you have what it takes to pull for your community?” said Linda Yule, with United Way.

Teams of eight will vie for the best time pulling a 19,400-kilogram transit bus.

First West is providing two buses and drivers for the event and teams will each pull twice.

“There will be awards for best time, most dollars raised, best men’s team and best women’s team,” said Yule.

“Last year, Kelowna had a strongman raise funds and pull the bus on his own. Do we have a local strongman? Get your team together and challenge your competitors, friends or family to also come out and pull for your community.”

To register a team, call 250-549-1346 or go to unitedwaynocs.com for the registration form.
