Illinois Plane Pull


What is the Plane Pull?

Special Olympics Illinois and the Illinois Law Enforcement Torch Run have partnered together to host a Plane Pull event at two locations in 2016.  The first event, our 8th Annual Plane Pull at O’Hare International will take place on Saturday, September 10.  The inaugural Southern Illinois Plane Pull will take place on Saturday, September 24 at the Southern Illinois Airport in Murphysboro.

The Plane Pull is the ultimate tug-of-war competition as teams compete to pull an aircraft 12 feet as quickly as possible. Awards are given to the fastest pull in each division, fastest pull overall and top fundraising team.  For more information on these events or to register a team, click on logos above.
