For 10 years, the National MS Society has partnered with Federal Express and the Portland International Jetport to present this unique and popular fundraising event.

The MS Plane Pull is a giant tug-of-war between your team and a huge aircraft weighing more than 72 tons!

Register your team of 25 to compete in the following team categories: Fastest Pull 1st, 2nd and 3rd, Slowest Pull, Team Spirit, Overall Event Winner (fundraising award), and new this year LIGHTEST PULL.

There are also special categories for Breweries, and Fitness Centers.

Plus win bragging rights for the year!

How it works:

  • A rope and tow bar is attached to a FedEx 757 aircraft.
  • Teams of 25 position themselves along the rope in preparation to pull over 72 tons.
  • Teams will pull twice: for fastest pull, then lightest pull.
  • Awards are presented at the end of the day.

So how can you compete in this battle of strength, stamina and fun? Organize a team of 25 by recruiting friends, family members and co-workers. Each team must raise a minimum of $1,500 to compete.  The Overall Event Winner trophy will be awarded to the team who raises the most money. The top fundraising individual will be recognized in the fall at the annual Shining Stars awards night.

Every dollar you raise, every tug on the towline brings us closer to a day when our world will be free of multiple sclerosis. 

We’re not yanking your chain…come pull our plane!
