2014 Event Results
Thank you to everyone who helped make the 2014 Law Enforcement Torch Run Plane Pull the biggest and best yet! A record 84 teams participated in this ultimate tug-of-war competition, battling a UPS Airbus A300 (weighing more than 190,000 lbs.). Additionally, nearly $150,000 was raised for the athletes of Special Olympics Illinois! We are truly grateful for your support, as events like the Plane Pull allow us to provide life-changing opportunities for the thousands of Special Olympics athletes throughout the state.
A special thanks to UPS, the Chicago Department of Aviation, City of Chicago, HMS Host, Durham School Services, TD Ameritrade and Vacationland RV for their support of this event.
