The UPS Plane Pull presented by BrightSpring for Special Olympics Kentucky is an exciting event to help support 8,900 athletes here in Louisville and across the state. Teams of 20 sign up in advance and raise a minimum of $1,500 to compete. On September 22, teams take their turn to see who can pull a 124,000-pound UPS Boeing 757 cargo plane 12 feet in the fastest time.

Trophies are awarded in men's, women's, co-ed and fitness friends divisions. 

There are additional prizes for the most team spirit, best costumes and for the best team t-shirt. There are also awards for the top individual and team fundraisers and for the top fundraising Special Olympics athlete.

Raise $2,000 by August 24 and your team will receive a special Plane Pull T-Shirts that feature your corporate logo or team name on the sleeve! The Corporate Challenge is a great way for your team to showcase your support of Special Olympics well beyond Pull Day!

Get your team together to “Pull for a Purpose” to benefit Special Olympics Kentucky athletes.
