Summer Festivals & Total Performance Sports team up for charity truck pull


The City of Malden is pleased to announce that the Third Annual Big Rig Charity Gig will once again kick off the Summer Festival on June 24. This event has always proven to be a huge hit with spectators and is one of the most remarkable parts of the festivals.

Starting at noon and going until 2 p.m. on Exchange Street, this free family-friendly event will feature two divisions: a lightweight division for smaller people and a heavyweight division for stronger people. The headliner event is a head-to-head competition between Pro Strongman Nick Cambi and the Greek Goliath, Niko Chaprales. After the professionals make their attempts, Total Performance Sports (TPS) Malden coaches will offer to assist anyone who wants to try this feat of strength, and participants will be able to choose to pull a dump truck or a 16,000 lb. tractor. Imagine the bragging rights at your next family gathering!

Best of all, TPS Malden, which is located at 150 Charles St. and named one of the Twenty Best Gyms in America, is donating 100% of the proceeds to Bread of Life and the Claddagh Fund. The Claddagh Fund provides financial assistance to families, and Bread of Life provides food and other resources to people in need.

Join us for the incredibly fun and “must be seen to be believed” event!
