About the Plane Pull Challenge

Looking for a great team-building event for your co-workers, friends or family? Join us each August for the Plane Pull Challenge to benefit Special Olympics Indiana, presented by FedEx Express!

Our largest single-day fundraiser, the Plane Pull Challenge offers a unique opportunity for your team of up to 20 to work together to raise important funds for Special Olympics athletes before going head to head with a Boeing FedEx 757 jetliner in an exciting game of tug of war.

Hosted each summer at the Indianapolis International Airport’s Postal Hub, this family-friendly event also features a festival-like atmosphere with live music, food, souvenirs, games and other activities throughout the day.

Accept the Challenge!

To participate, each team of up to 20 must raise at least $1,200 in pledges — that’s an average of just $60 per person! And all funds raised by the event directly benefit more than 16,000 Special Olympics athletes across Indiana.

Registration for the 2020 Plane Pull Challenge is expected to open in April or May 2020. Stay up to date by joining our email list below, and contact Scott Furnish or call (317) 328-2000 for more information.
