How do Aggies raise money for charity? Well they tie a rope to a tractor and pull it as fast as they can.
This year’s Tractor Tug for Tots was held on Wednesday, November 21st on Reynolds Walk. Organized by a dedicated group of students from the OAC, the 5th edition of this event had a variety of teams from the science, business and engineering programs as well as a faculty team from the OAC.
The competition was fierce to say the least with 26 teams entered. There can only be one winner however with the 2013 Ag Bus Elite coming out as the team with the fastest pull – clocking 6.2 mph at one point! Environmental Sciences came away as best dressed and the Poultry Club featuring Jake “Eggs” Peliserro were the top fundraisers.
Right to Play was the charity selected this year with a goal set of $10,000. Right to Play uses sport to help educate and empower kids all over the world in underprivileged areas. Once the goal is reached, Tractor Tug for Tots will have helped 200 kids for an entire year!
Just because the event is over doesn’t mean it’s too late to help out! Click the link below to make a donation to the Right to Play organization. A huge thank you goes out to all the supporters of the event thus far in making it a great success.
