Atlantic SDF Continues it's Support for Special Olympics

CONTRIBUTOR: Atlantic Aviation

On October 3rd, Atlantic Louisville hosted the 3rd annual UPS Special Olympics Plane Pull benefiting the Special Olympics of Kentucky. This year's UPS Plane Pull included more than 600 pullers on 36 teams and raised nearly $85,000 for Special Olympics.

 

Each team was made up of 15 members and pledged to raise at least $1,000 in order to pull UPS’s Boeing 757 for charity. The theme of the day was Super Heroes, and even though the weather did not cooperate at times, all had a great time and enjoyed the day.

 

The Kentucky Air National Guard sold hamburgers, hotdogs, and hot chocolate. A family fun zone complete with bouncy houses was sponsored by Atlantic Louisville.
