Minneapolis and St. Paul will settle their age-old rivalry with an epic tug-of-war across the Mighty Mississippi River, all in the name of charity.
Pulling Together is 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.
This Saturday at Hidden Falls Regional Park, some of Minnesota’s favorite organizations from each side of the river will compete against each other. Teams earned their way to the tug-of-war by raising at least $10,000. WCCO, the CBS Affiliate which is a sponsor of the event is also asking its viewers to donate to their favorite city. The city to raise the most money will serve as a tie-breaker for the tug-of-war.
