UPS Paper Plane Challenge presented by BrightSpring

Introducing the first-ever UPS Paper Plane Challenge
supporting Special Olympics Kentucky!

Paper Plane Challenge

Due to ongoing concerns caused by the coronavirus, the UPS Plane Pull presented by BrightSpring held each September at Worldport will be transitioned to a remote Paper Plane Challenge! Considering all the hard work that teams have already begun, Special Olympics Kentucky wanted to provide the chance to see your efforts through and to compete for division titles and fundraising awards.

This is a great way to get a group together, without getting together, to support Special Olympics Kentucky!

Compete anywhere, anytime between September 2 and September 17

Each member (at home, at the office, at an appropriately distanced gathering) has two attempts to throw a paper plane for distance. The longest throw is recorded and tallied for the team’s total distance thrown.

Champion’s trophies will be presented in men’s women’s and co-ed divisions. Fundraising prizes are also awarded for the top three teams, top individual and top SOKY Athlete.

Each team raises a minimum of $1,500 to compete for awards and receive event t-shirts.
