The funds raised at the UPS Plane Pull supports over 11,300 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.



Though we are excited to be planning an in-person event, our team is monitoring all local and CDC guidelines. You can find all current event changes and considerations here. We will continue to update these guidelines and prioritize the safety of all participants, spectators, and volunteers.

For more information please contact Jennifer at or call 502-326-5002 ext. 203.

One of our largest fundraisers, the UPS Plane Pull presented by BrightSpring offers a unique opportunity for your team of 20 to work together to pull a plane in the fastest time. Hosted this summer at the UPS Worldport (911 Grade Lane), this family-friendly event also features music, food, games and other activities throughout the day.
