The Great Tugboat Race


A tugboat is a boat that maneuvers vessels by pushing or towing them. Tugs move vessels that either should not move themselves, such as ships in a crowded harbor or a narrow canal, or those that cannot move themselves alone, such as barges, disabled ships, or oil platforms. Watch as these hard working ships race across the St. Marys River.

Our organization is very similar to a tugboat, in that we assist people who cannot help themselves because of a disability. Our main objective is helping challenged children and it is something that we have done since 1982. That, in itself, deserves a master salute.
