Today was a special day for several groups who participated in the annual plane pull at Newark Liberty Airport.
With teams of up to 20 people each, guys, gals and kids, who weighed in to participate for a trophy and bragging rights as they got to go against a 737 and help the Special Olympics of New Jersey at the airport's annual Family Day. Prizes were awarded at the end of the day for the team that raised the most money, the team that moved the plane the fastest, and the team able to move the plane using the least weight. Quite a feat against a 737 that weighs 93,000 pounds, but these determined folks gave it their all for an awesome cause.
As reported by NJ.com, the plane pull was introduced in 1997 and has helped the NJ Law Enforcement Torch Run raise more than $2,000,000 each year for the athletes of Special Olympics, according to organizers. Check out all the pictures on their website, and the fun they all had showing their strength, determination and giving hearts.
