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 do expect to hold the UPS Plane Pull presented by BrightSpring on September 19 at the UPS Worldport facility. We are committed to working with local and state health departments as well as with government officials and Special Olympics International to put measures in place in order for the event to be in compliance with current restrictions and guidelines. We will continue to monitor the situation to ensure the safety of all participants, volunteers, and staff. Thank you for supporting SOKY. Please visit “COVID-19 Updates” page for more details.
