The Plane Pull raises funds and awareness for more than 8,200 Special Olympics Minnesota athletes. Don’t miss the fun as teams of up to 8 people compete to pull a Delta jet a distance of 25 feet across the tarmac in the fastest time!

Event registration

To participate, each team must raise at least $1,000 in pledges. All funds raised by the event will benefit Special Olympics Minnesota.

Through the registration process, you’ll be able to create your own Plane Pull webpage. Register today and start collecting pledges online. Each donation will automatically be added to your Plane Pull team total.

NEW THIS YEAR: All participants who raise $150 on their page will receive a Plane Pull Travel Pack in addition to the event T-shirt, and participants who raise $300+ will receive a Plane Pull tumbler!
