Join Special Olympics Colorado for the 2020 Plane Pull presented by Subway! We have modified this year’s event to provide a fun and safe event for all. Invite your friends and family to join your team or support with a donation from afar.
Teams of 10 will challenge each other to see who can pull a 64,000-pound plane 20 feet the fastest. Each team will have a fundraising minimum of $1,000 that they can fundraise individually or as a team and earn fun incentives along the way.
Teams will be given a Plane Pull time that includes time to arrive, check-in, go through a COVID screening and receive your complimentary plane pull gloves. The first teams to reach their fundraising minimum will be able to choose their pull time!
Although the event will be modified this year, teams will still have the opportunity to take in the breathtaking views at the Rocky Mountain Metropolitan Airport, check-out cool police vehicles and airplanes on display, and every participant will receive a complimentary lunch from Subway!
Proceeds from Plane Pull presented by Subway directly benefit the more than 18,000 Special Olympics Colorado athletes and Unified partners who rely on year-round sports training, competitions, health, fitness, and leadership programming.
