Date & Location: Wednesday, May 15, 2024, at Nathan Phillips Square

Event Duration: 10:00 a.m. – 2:30 p.m. ET



The 2024 Second Harvest Truck Pull Challenge is a corporate team challenge that will be open to public spectators.
Truck Pull is a competition to see which team can pull a Second Harvest delivery truck across Nathan Phillips Square in the fastest time. Teams compete head-to-head in a tournament format.

There are also lots of other optional activities to take part in on-site throughout the day!
Each team will be assigned a wave time. You will be expected to be at the event for a minimum of 2 hours. While we appreciate all requests, the earlier you register, the easier it will be to accommodate them.
  • Assemble a team of 10 people and register your team here
  • Raise $2,500 to reserve a lane for your team – your fundraising will help provide food for 7,500 meals!
  • Get ready to compete against Toronto’s top teams to pull a truck 100 feet across Nathan Phillips Square
Your Second Harvest contact will keep you up to date on fundraising tips, event expectations and safety precautions.
Expect a fun and engaging team-bonding experience and the opportunity to connect with our community of passionate supporters. Come cheer for your favourite team and take part in other fun activities at the event.

Plus, complimentary food and drinks are available on-site for all participants!

We will be awarding the team that raises the most funds with an incredible prize! Stay tuned for these exciting details.
Once your team raises the minimum of $2,500, there are no additional fees to register for the challenge.
