Mark your calendars now for the 2012 FedEx Plane Pull Challenge to benefit Special Olympics Indiana! This giant tug-of-war between you, your friends/coworkers and a 164,000-pound FedEx Boeing 757 will take place Aug. 25, 2012, at the Indianapolis International Airport.
The FedEx Plane Pull Challenge raises funds and awareness for more than 11,000 Special Olympics athletes in Indiana. The organization receives no federal funding and depends entirely upon donations. This means that no donation is too big or too small to have an impact on a Special Olympics athlete’s life!
So…who is ready to donate and sign up? We need a team of 20 in order to compete. Teams are competing not only to pull the plane across the 12-foot tarmac in the quickest time, but also for the best costumes and most team spirit! Friends and family are more than welcome to join the fun!
Thanks to a contribution from Jennifer Blattler and her husband, we have sweetened the pot. For every $10 you donate/raise, you will receive one raffle ticket, and be entered in a drawing to win 2 COLTS/Vikings tickets for September 16th!!!!! This means if you donate $50, you receive 5 raffle tickets for a chance to win!
Chad Haneline, Lindsey Brown, and Grant Lindley will be collecting donations or you can donate right here!! We appreciate your help with this great cause!
