We would like to congratulate the Shawnee Fire Department for taking the Grand Champion trophy for the second time in a row.
The Merriam Police Department took second place, and the Crisp Cuts and Styles with special guest KC Chiefs Zach Fulton took third place. Congratulations to those teams, but the big winners were the athletes of Special Olympics. Thanks to all of the teams and individuals that raised funds. This year’s total amount raised is still being tallied. Please check back for the total amount raised this year.

2016 brought a new event called the lowest combined weight pull.
Each team that raised more than $300 was eligible to participate. Participating teams would select any number of members to begin pulling the Lenco Bear (approx 34,000 lbs) for 50 feet. The team was able to add other members to help but they were not allowed to remove members. The team was then weighed at the conclusion of the pull and the total weight was added to the time.
The winners of this event were Tom Daly and Justin Verbenec with the Shawnee Fire Department.
