One of our two Plane Pull events has headed to the hangar for another year as the DHL Plane Pull raised more than $80,000 on Sept. 26 at the DHL Express Hub at CVG Airport in Erlanger.
That leaves the UPS Plane Pull presented by ResCare as the last of this year's pull events. And the UPS Plane Pull is cleared for liftoff on Saturday, Oct. 3, at Atlantic Aviation at Louisville International Airport.
The Plane Pulls feature teams of 20 testing their strength against huge cargo jets to see who can pull the beast 12 feet in the shortest time. Champions are 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.
