CHARLOTTE, N.C., Oct 16, 2019 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- Move For Hunger announced today that registration is open for the first-ever Charlotte Truck Pull, presented by MYMOVE. The event, in which teams of 5-10 will compete to see who can pull a moving truck 100 feet in the fastest time, will be held at Lenny Boy Brewing Co. (3000 South Tryon Street, Charlotte, NC, 28217) on Saturday, November 16 from Noon-4 p.m.
Registration is $100 per team and can be completed at CharlotteTruckPull.com. Proceeds from the event will benefit Move For Hunger, a national non-profit organization that has created a sustainable way for the relocation industry to reduce food waste and fight hunger.
"MYMOVE is thrilled to deepen our partnership with Move For Hunger and continue supporting our very own community during the inaugural truck pull here in Charlotte," said Ben Mark, MYMOVE's Director of Partnerships. "We hope this represents the first of many future opportunities to combine our two brands, engage people about the Move For Hunger cause, and further the effort to fight hunger."
Suddath Relocation Systems of Charlotte will provide one of their trucks for the event. As a member of Move For Hunger's national network of relocation professionals Suddath provides their customers with the opportunity to donate unopened, non-perishable food during the moving process and volunteers to deliver the donations to the local food bank, free of charge.
"At Suddath Relocation Systems of Charlotte, we are invested in our local community and giving back to those around us," said Monty Miller, Suddath's Vice President & General Manager, Network Operations. "It is an honor to be a Move for Hunger partner and we look forward to making a lasting impact on the lives that we touch with this partnership."
More than 1.5 million people in North Carolina, including 1 in 5 children, do not have reliable access to a sufficient quantity of affordable, nutritious food. Meanwhile, 40% of all the food in the United States is wasted. The funds raised at the Charlotte Truck Pull will support Move For Hunger's hunger relief and food rescue programs, both in North Carolina and nationwide.
