The 2016 Plane Pull® presented by Credit Suisse to benefit Special Olympics North Carolina was held April 30, 2016 on the UPS Tarmac at the Raleigh/Durham International Airport! Thank you to the 76 teams who participated and raised more than $110,000 for Special Olympics NC!
Congratulations to the 2016 Plane Pull Champions – The Bertie Enforcers of the Bertie Correctional Institution
The Plane Pull® in NC helps to provide nearly 40,000 individuals with intellectual disabilities the opportunity to receive sports training and competition in 19 Olympic-type sports. The Plane Pull® is also a unique team building activity for groups. It requires participants to come together as a team to achieve a very daunting task — pull an airplane 25 feet!
