Pulling for Honor

Old Glory Honor Flight Fundraiser

Join us for a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to pull a 200,000 pound aircraft to benefit Old Glory Honor Flight.

We supply the rope and the aircraft…. you bring the muscle. Each team consists of up to 20 individuals. Teams must pull the plane 12 feet, and the team who pulls the fastest is the winner. Team buy-in is a minimum donation of $1,500. Be a part of history on June 23, 2018 when we come together to raise $85,000 to benefit Old Glory Honor Flight. Our mission is to fully fund one flight and enable 100 veterans to experience this unforgettable trip to Washington D.C.  To date, we’ve flown 45 missions, enabling more than 4,000 World War II, Korean War and Vietnam veterans to visit their memorials in Washington D.C.

The Pulling for Honor event is June 23, 2018, and the community is invited to attend from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Pulling for Honor also includes a children’s plane pull, military and civilian aircraft displays, veteran’s exhibits (providing vital information regarding services available for veterans in our community) and a brat fry to benefit Fox Valley Technical College’s Veterans Mentor Group.
