Plane Pulls Raise More than $166,000
in 2014

Louisville Event Grows; Inaugural Northern KY Event Provides Great Season Ending
DHL Check Presentation

The 2013 Plane Pull season has come to an end after a pair of extremely successful events.

The second UPS Plane Pull presented by ResCare since the event was able to return to Atlantic Aviation in Louisville showed some great signs of growth when it was held on Sept. 28. Nearly 40 teams -- including a good mix of returning teams and newcomers -- helped to raise more than $115,000 for Special Olympics Kentucky.

The inaugural DHL Plane Pull at the DHL Express hub at CVG Airport in Northern Kentucky saw teams brave a driving, cold rain to pull that 757 on Saturday, Oct. 19. It also saw an incredibly generous donation from DHL. During the event's Opening Ceremonies, DHL presented SOKY with a check for $20,000 in addition to the money raised by their teams for the event. In all, the first Northern Kentucky event raised more than $50,000.

The Plane Pull is a perfect team-building experience for any company or organization, but teams can just as easily be made up of family members, neighbors or any other group. One of last year's Louisville winners was a team from a local fitness facility. There are no limits as to who can be a part of this fun and exciting day.
