ROTHSCHILD (WAOW) -

Strong men and women showed off their muscles at the 12th Annual Semi Pull in Rothschild.

Members of the community watched as athletes lifted weights, flipped tires, and pulled trucks.
Organizers said proceeds from the event help fund Special Olympic teams throughout Central Wisconsin, and raise awareness about the program.

"It just makes me feel good that I can be involved in it and do my part, you know, for the athletes. It's just a special feeling for me," Bob Roeske, Semi Pull organizer.

Organizers said the event has raised more than $130,000 for Special Olympics Wisconsin. This year's Semi Pull made more than $4,000.
