Meade has been participating in the Special Olympics plane pull at O’Hare every year since 2009. This year the event raised more than $225,000 for Special Olympics of Illinois to allow athletes across the state to compete in sports at cost, year in and year out. The Plane Pull features the ultimate tug-of-war competition as teams of up to 20 battle a UPS Airbus A300 or United Airlines 737, weighing more than 180,000 lbs.
This year the Meade team pulled twice! Winning both pulls!
