SIU plane-pull raises money for Illinois Special Olympics

CARBONDALE (WSIL) — Dozens gathered at SIU’s airport for this year’s Plane-Pull Saturday.

There were 28 teams this year which is double the amount of teams last year.

A technical difficulty led to pulling a fire truck instead of the initially intended plane.

Saturday’s pull raises money for more than 23-thousand athletes that participate in Illinois Special Olympics.
