Pulling for the Community

Do you have what it takes to pull a 33,000 lb. semi with 53 ft. trailer 125 feet? We’re proud to say at Dr. Hook, we’re not only willing to give it a try – but to sponsor such a good cause.

The 8th Annual Truck Pull in support of the United Way was held at by the Manitoba Trucking Association at Assiniboine Park. For members of the trucking industry, we spend our days and nights pulling freight or pulling you out of the ditch and we’re honored to be part of pulling the community forward.

At Dr. Hook, we’re proud to be part of the sponsors that allow 100% of the money raised in the truck pull to go directly to United Way.

Join Us at the United Way Truck Pull

Last year we were proud to be involved in the first ever “Industry Related” Truck Pull event in support of United Way. It was a huge success and we had a great time!

This year the event will be held at Polo Park Shopping Centre parking log (facing St James) on Thursday, October 13, 5:00pm. The Dr. Hook team will be participating again and hope to make this year an even bigger success!

As part of the 400 for-hire trucking companies in Manitoba, we feel it’s important to participate in events which showcase the industries commitment to community support for worthwhile causes in the communities we operate in.

Be sure to join the fun!
