LAREDO, TEXAS (KGNS) -- The weather did not seem to stop teams from the annual fire truck pull event.

The tug-of-war contest is an extreme contest that allows a ten person team the chance to try to pull a fire truck.

All proceeds from those participating goes into funding the law enforcement torch run held May 20th.

This is the eighth year the fire engine pull has taken place.

The law enforcement torch run is Special Olympics' largest grass-roots fundraiser.

The event has contributed over 11 million through the dedication of thousands of Law Enforcement personnel fundraising on their behalf.
