UPS Plane Pull Presented by BrightSpring, October 1st at UPS Worldport

The UPS Plane Pull presented by BrightSpring for Special Olympics Kentucky is an exciting event to help support 11,000 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 the day of the event teams will take their turn to see who can pull a 155,000-pound UPS Boeing 757 cargo jet 12 feet in the fastest time.

The UPS Plane Pull is one of the largest annual fundraisers supporting SOKY each year.  The success of this event provides needed funding to deliver multiple programs for people with intellectual disabilities.

Special Olympics Kentucky

Special Olympics is the world’s largest program of sports training and competition for children and adults with intellectual disabilities. Participation is open to all individuals eight years of age or older. Training and competition in local, area, state, and national programs is offered year-round in 15 sports in Kentucky.

Participation in Special Olympics helps athletes improve physical fitness and increase confidence and self-esteem. Through Special Olympics, athletes learn valuable skills that they carry with them off the playing field and into their schools, jobs and communities.

In addition to sports, Special Olympics offers health screening programs through its Healthy Athletes initiatives and early childhood programming for young children with intellectual disabilities through the Young Athletes Program.
