Participate in a Special Olympics Plane Pull Fundraiser

Help raise money for Special Olympics by pulling a jet plane.

Palisades Senior Lead Officer Brian Espin is raising money for Special Olympics Southern California by forming a team to pull a jet plane.

On Saturday, September 23, LAPD and other individuals are invited to test strength, stamina, and endurance during the Plane Pull fundraiser at the Long Beach Airport. The competition pits teams of 25 to see who can pull a 124,000-pound jet, 12 feet, the fastest.

“At the last in-person Plane Pull event in 2022, we raised over $250,000 for Special Olympics Southern California athletes,” Espin said.

People can create or join teams, come as an individual and be placed on a team, or just donate to LAPD WEST LA, whose team goal is to raise $5,000 for Special Olympics.

“Last year, our community supported the Special Olympics to the tune of $3,000. I want to surpass this mark and show these Special Olympics Athletes that our community supports them even more,” Espin said.  For more information,  click here.

If person wishes to donate, rather than pull, donate on behalf of team LAPD West LA .

“Please pass this email around to friends and family who wish to help out the Special Olympics and the Athletes,” Espin said. “Every dollar raised by Special Olympics provides equipment, uniforms, and training for athletes.”
