Plane Pull

April 18, 2020 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm


Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and out of an abundance of caution, United Way of the Mid-South is postponing our Plane Pull, currently scheduled for April 18.  We appreciate the great level of support from the community, and we look forward to hosting this event at a future date.

Don’t miss this opportunity to compete against other companies for bragging rights and your chance to take home a large trophy! Team up with 25 colleagues and friends to see how fast you can pull a FedEx plane 12 feet. Proceeds will drive the dreams of Mid-Southerners!
