Kickoff meeting begins preparation for Big Brown Truck Pull

A crowd gathered in Paducah Thursday is ready to take on what’s called the Biggest Challenge in Kentucky. 

A Captains Kickoff meeting for a local Special Olympics fundraiser was held Thursday at Texas Roadhouse in Paducah. 

The meeting was for the Big Brown Truck Pull, which raises money for Special Olympics athletes in our area and across Kentucky. 

Laura Miller with Special Olympics says your participation helps the organization even beyond the truck pull itself. 

"We have a year-round sports training, we have healthy athlete programs, project unified programs in schools. We have a lot to offer, and we want people to know what we have to offer," Miller said. 

The Big Brown Truck Pull is scheduled for Aug. 6 in downtown Paducah.
