SPOKANE,Wash. -- Dozens of people put their strength to the test today to benefit Washington Special Olympics.

Teams worked together Saturday using all their strength to pull a more than 138,000 pound plane 12 feet.

One family was there for a family member who has been competing in the Special Olympics since he was 6.

"We love th opportunities it provides Loren, so we wanted to give back and show our support," said Julie Vanwormer.

This is the second annual plane pull at the Spokane International Airport. 160 people participated and raised $7,000.
