Let's Pull Together!  Human Tractor Pull

Tuesday, June 18 | 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. | N Bailey Ave Between 4th and 5th Streets   

Next to the NEBRASKALand Days Lincoln County Cattlemen Prime Rib Feed

Bring your team of 4-6 and show we can move mountains (or tractors) when we work together!  Join Mid-Plains United Way for our inaugural human tractor pull.   Teams will race against the clock-and each other-to win the tractor pull champion title.  

This is a terrific opportunity for businesses, ranches, fire departments, police departments, schools and families to show who can "pull together" the best.

As a fundraiser for both Mid-Plains United Way and your own cause, teams are asked to guarantee a contribution of $300 to Mid-Plains United Way and crowdfund via social media like Facebook fundraisers for your own cause. Registration includes a t-shirt and Prime Rib Feed ticket for each participant.


All participants must complete a photo/video release and liability waiver prior to the event.
