Hall County Sheriff's Sgt. Greg Cochran will attempt to flip a 555-pound tire more than 205 times in a single hour at Chestatee High School on Jan. 16 in order to raise money for two worthy causes.
Proceeds from the “Tire to Inspire” event’s sponsors, which include North Hall Tire & Wheel, Texas Roadhouse, Syfan Logistics, Reebok, Record Setter and The Vitamin Shoppe, will benefit the Georgia Sheriff's Youth Homes and Chestatee High School's Community Service Program.
“The work that these two organizations do for our community is invaluable,” Cochran said. “I am proud to bring awareness of their missions to the forefront while also promoting the benefits of physical fitness, a true passion of mine and a major initiative for the Sheriff’s Office under the leadership of Hall County Sheriff Gerald Couch.”
Since taking office, Couch has implemented a department-wide physical fitness requirement, which ensures all officers are capable of performing the necessary physical duties of a law enforcement official.
The event’s promotional video, which was produced by Chestatee High School students, can be viewed here: http://www.chswetv.com/world-record.html.
“Our students have been actively involved in promoting this event, which has undoubtedly served as a learning opportunity for them,” said Suzanne Jarrard, principal of Chestatee High School. “Chestatee High School is proud to partner with the Hall County Sheriff’s Office on this effort, and we wish Sgt. Cochran the best of luck in his attempt to break a world record.”
The "Tire to Inspire" event will take place between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. Admission to the event is free.
