As we get ready to head into summer, it's time to start making your plans to Flex Your Muscles for Special Olympics at Plane Pulls in Northern Kentucky and Louisville. You and your team get to show off your super strength against a giant cargo plane.
The DHL Plane Pull is scheduled for Saturday, September 26, at the DHL Express hub at CVG Airport in Florence.
The UPS Plane Pull will hit the tarmac at Atlantic Aviation in Louisville on Saturday, October 3.
Both events include teams of 20 testing their strength against a Boeing 757 cargo jet (subject to change) to see who can pull the beast 12 feet in the shortest time. Champions will be crowned in men's, women's and co-ed divisions. There are also awards for the top individual fundraiser and top fundraising team, the team with the best team cheer and the team with the best team T-shirt or costumes.
Teams must raise a minimum of $1,000 per team to compete and can earn better prizes for their members the more they raise.
