The FDLE, Florida Highway Safety, Department of Agriculture, Department of Environmental Protection, and Department of Transportation all tugged off against one another to kick off this year's charitable campaign. It benefits the Florida State Employee's Charitable Campaign--but also assigns bragging rights to the best tug of war team.
Stephanie Kopelousos, the Secretary of the Department of Transportation said, "It gets everybody excited, excited about what we're doing, who we're helping and that type of thing, so we're real excited. It's the second annual and I think it continues to get bigger and bigger as a tug of war."
Thursday morning's tug of war at Cascades Park set the Department of Agriculture as the winner for the second year in a row.
