The Plane Pull is one of SONC’s signature fundraising special events involving up to 400 participants who raise over $100,000 annually for SONC. We want to thank our presenting sponsor Credit Suisse along with our long-time partners RDU International Airport, UPS, and American Airlines for the time and attention given to planning the Plane Pull, which was originally scheduled for April 2020 but postponed due to the outbreak of the pandemic. We will look forward to a time in 2021 when we might have a safer opportunity to bring everyone together for the event.
What’s a Plane Pull?
The Plane Pull® is 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! Five-person teams will compete to see who can pull a 30,000-pound plane the fastest! Participants must be at least 14 years old to compete. Each five-person team must raise a minimum of $800 total by the event date.
Please note that in the case of event cancellation due to inclement weather or other reasons, no refund will be provided.
