Teams are building up that upper body strength once again, preparing for the United Way Campaign Kickoff Tug of War.
The event serves as a kick-off to United Way's 2019 campaign.
Teams from Mankato and North Mankato will go head-to-head Wednesday, August 8 from 4 to 6 p.m. at the Verizon Grand Hall.
Last year, North Mankato did come out victorious, but that could all change this year.
The event is free and the public is encouraged to come out and cheer on competing teams.
To register a team, call the United Way office at 507-345-4551 or email BarbK@mankatounitedway.org.
