On Oct. 6,  the Illinois Law Enforcement Torch Run will host their 3rd annual Southern Illinois Plane Pull as part of the AOPA Fly-In.  With individuals from around the country traveling to Carbondale for the Fly-In event, we would like to offer an opportunity for those folks to join us as we PULL FOR SPECIAL OLYMPICS! 

Each AOPA Walk Up Team will consist of a maximum of 10 individuals who are coming together to play tug-of-war with an aircraft weighting nearly 30 tons at Southern Illinois Airport.  Walk-Up Teams will pull between 11 a.m. - 1 p.m. that day. 

Registration is $50 donation per person !  Your donation will help provide the more than 22,000 athletes with intellectual disabilities and more than 20,500 Young Athletes (ages 2-7) the chance to participate in year-round sports training and competitions – all at no cost to the athletes or their families!

Your support is greatly appreciated – don’t forget to forward this to anyone else that may want to help in our efforts to transform lives!
