On February 8, PCA’s plant in Syracuse, New York, participated in the fourth annual “Sled for Red” competition to raise money for youth HIV/STD prevention programs. As part of the event, 25 teams raced sleds constructed from corrugated. Awards were given for the fastest, slowest and most creative sleds.
Although PCA’s sled came in fifth for speed, it took home the prize for most creative. PCA’s team name was “The Gators” (for corrugators), and their sled was aptly named “Corey Gator.” Corey was decorated to resemble an alligator and was steered by one of Syracuse’s longtime clamp truck operators.
The Sled for Red competition is a family-friendly event that features a food and drink tasting, live music and discounted snow tubing provided by the Four Seasons Golf and Ski Center.
In total, team members from PCA Syracuse raised over $500 for the organization while having a good time with family and friends and supporting a great cause.
