ChOTW: Pulling an Airplane

  
  
  

Planepull
Have twenty friends up for a challenge? A big challenge? Like an pulling an 147,000 lb. FedEx Boeing 727 jet a distance of 12 feet kind of challenge?  Well on August 11th, 20 teams have pledged online to take THAT kind of challenge!  These teams are pledging to pull a plane 12ft in the fastest  amount of time. to benefit the Special Olympics athletes of Indiana.  To participate in the awesome event each team has to raise minimum of $1,000 dollars! Already we have Cool Sam and the Gang and Blake's Buddies are neck and neck with online donations of $955!  That's great! The Plane Janes have raised $600 online!



I went over to Special Olympics Indiana's website to see if I could find out any more informations and I even got to see last years scores.  The top male team, Blake's Buddies 3, pulled the plane in 8.22 seconds.  I had no idea how fast they could do it!  Last year's top female team, Blake’s Buddies 1, lugged 147,000 lbs of metal in 10.68 seconds. 



It looks like it is shaping up to be a really amazing event, it makes me smile to think of the entire Firstgiving team pulling a plane. . . maybe with me taking photos since we have 21 people working here, if only we lived in Indiana!
