Have you Heard? Plane Pull Registration is Officially Open!
Whether you're a veteran puller or ready to get your hands dirty for the first time, our athletes want you to ACCEPT THE CHALLENGE on August 25th and be a part of our largest single-day fundraiser of the year: the 2018 Plane Pull Challenge, presented by Fed Ex Express!
Pulling a plane is easier than it sounds, and all participants get a personal fundraising web page so collecting pledges is simple. Better yet, all funds raised directly benefit more than 14,000 Special Olympics athletes throughout the state, helping to ensure that they are never charged to participate in our year-round programs and events.
To participate, simply recruit or join a team of 20 or more who are willing to work together to raise a minimum of $1,200. Pulling a plane together is a great way to engage your friends, family, and coworkers, and many of our best supporters are backed by companies and organizations who want to encourage their employees to give back to the local community. So don't be shy: ask your manager or human resources department about getting involved!
