Special Olympics 8th Annual Plane Pull

On July 15, Cleveland Hopkins International Airport hosted the 8th Annual Cleveland Plane Pull. The Cleveland Police Plane Pull Team brought home some impressive trophies! Flexing their muscles to the max, CPD’s 4 teams won 1st place in the Co-ed and Public Safety Divisions, and placed 2nd in both the Men’s and Women’s divisions. Most importantly, CPD raised nearly $6,000 for Special Olympics!! Our fundraising efforts were bolstered by the Cleveland Police Foundation’s $1,000 donation, Minnesota Viking’s Offensive Line’s and Alex Boone‘s $2,000 donation, and Councilman Brian Kazy‘s $500 donation!! In total, this year’s Plane Pull raised nearly $70,000 for Special Olympics!! This event is as much about team building and morale boosting as it is about raising money for our special kids in Ohio!! Thank you to all who participated, donated, and supported our team!! Editor’s Note: Over the past 3 years, the plane pull has raised over $200,000 for Special Olympics!!
