Who Wants to Pull a 164,000-Pound Plane with 123JUNK?

It’s that time of year again where 123JUNK is recruiting pullers on our team for the annual Dulles Day Plane Pull. This is our 6th consecutive year participating in this great event held Saturday, September 23, 2017.

This year, 123JUNK is pitted against a 164,000-pound jumbo jet to raise money for Special Olympics Virginia. You can either join our team of pullers (you get a free T-shirt!), or come and cheer us on from the sidelines as we put our heart and soul into pulling the Airbus A320 for twelve feet as fast as we can, while being timed.

Since we’ve been involved, the number of competing pull teams has ranged from 70 to 120. 123JUNK has done well in this event, usually placing in the Top 15 teams. In our best year, we finished 6th! But we still have our eyes on the Chesapeake Sherriff’s Office—the 13-time defending champions. Maybe this year, we’ll take them down!

Awards are handed out for the fasted full, the heaviest team, the lightest team, the most money raised, the most enthusiastic team, and much, much more. The event is free to attend, and there is so much more to see and do—a plane show, a car show, aircraft tours, a police and SWAT vehicle display, live music, food, and more. There is something for the entire family.

123JUNK also participates by supplying a shiny red dump truck for the Kid’s Truck Pull. See which team pulls the truck 12 feet the fastest! We’re also looking for volunteers to help here. The Kid’s Zone features a bounce house, games, music and a dunk tank—fun all day.

Help 123JUNK Raise Money for Special Olympics Virginia

Although there is no fee to attend the Dulles Day Plane Pull, our goal is to ultimately raise money for Special Olympics Virginia. This year our target goal is $3,000. If you cannot make it to the event, kindly considering donating. All proceeds go towards Special Olympics. Come out and join us!
