Fasten your seatbelts, we have a story for you. In anticipation of the 2017 Plane Pull Season, we would like to introduce you to a few of our Plane Pull pals.
7 years and counting (Team Meade: established 2010)
We Participate Because
In 2010, an employee of Meade brought this fantastic fundraiser to our attention and we’ve been participating ever since. We had former employees that have participated on the Meade team that have family members who are Special Olympics athletes. Each year, we continue to promote this event and our support for Special Olympics. Our hope is that we will help generate interest in any participation capacity – whether it’s volunteering or qualifying to become an athlete. We love the fact that all of the proceeds that are raised go to helping the more than 20,000 people with intellectual disabilities fulfill their dreams at being an athlete.
With Meade being involved in the Special Olympics not only the Plane Pull, I believe that this fundraiser truly brings out the best in our people and every year we look forward to this event. Thanks again to everyone who assists with this great event. We understand this event is not easy to plan and appreciate all of the volunteers that give their time and effort.
