The funds raised at the UPS Plane Pull supports over 11,000 Special Olympics athletes across the state of Kentucky who compete in year-round sports competition, leadership training, health screenings, and inclusive school programming.

Each team raises a minimum of $1,500 to participate.



As we navigate through COVID-19, we are hopeful that the situation will improve over the coming months and we’ll be able to hold the UPS Plane Pull presented by BrightSpring as normal. We are committed to working with local health officials and law enforcement to put safety measures in place, and we will only hold the event if we are told it can be done safely. We will continue to monitor the situation to ensure the safety of all participants. Thank you for supporting SOKY – we hope to see you in September!
