Central Concrete Sponsors Special Olympics Power Pull for the 14th Year
Central Concrete was honored to again sponsor the Special Olympics Power Pull on such a memorable day as 9/11 at the Moffet Field Airfield. It was truly an honor to mingle with the Military families that have truly served our country and were there to support our Special Olympic Athletes. The fact that our Central Team did not finish in the center stage did not make a difference to us as we followed the Special Olympic oath before any competition starts – “Let me win, but if we don’t win, let us be brave in the attempt!” Well we were sure brave in the attempt – especially in the first pull where the 90,000 pound C-130 didn’t even move! The second time was better!
We thank everyone that came out and supported this great cause. The proceeds of the event allows our Special Athletes to be integrated into the sports programs of our 300 high schools throughout the East & West Bay.
