The 21st annual Plane Pull Challenge kicked off



Indianapolis, Indiana – On Saturday, at 9 a.m., the 21st annual Plane Pull Challenge kicked off at the Indianapolis International Airport.

According to Jeff Mohler, CEO of Special Olympics Indiana, this is their largest single-day fundraiser.

“The unique fundraising event offers for teams of up to 15 people the opportunity to compete and determine who can pull the 82-ton FedEx aircraft down a 12-foot track in the shortest amount of time,” Mohler said. “The fastest team in each of the five divisions — corporate, public safety, high school, college and open — will receive an award. Plus, individuals can earn additional prizes for raising money to support Hoosiers with intellectual disabilities.”

Each team that participated had to raise $1,200 to compete.
