Special Olympics Florida Plane Pull is a giant tug-of-war, pitting teams of up to 15 members against a plane to see which team can pull the 50 ton aircraft 12 feet the fastest. Teams must raise a minimum of $1,500 to participate, that’s just $100 per person! Your efforts allow Special Olympics Florida to continue providing year-round training and athletic competitions at no cost to our 47,000   athletes statewide.

We need you!

Our mission remains as vital today as it did when the movement was founded in 1968. Our program, however, has transcended beyond just sports. Special Olympics Florida’s year-round programs in health, education, community building and sports address inactivity, injustice, intolerance and social isolation by encouraging and empowering people with intellectual disabilities. Special Olympics programs allow athletes to overcome these challenges and give them an opportunity to participate in their community, strengthen their abilities, and become champions! By “pulling” for our athletes, you are helping us reach and support more people who want to be a part of these life changing programs we offer.
