Pulling For Honor 2017


Pulling For Honor is a fundraiser benefiting Eastern Iowa Honor Flight. The mission of Eastern Iowa Honor Flight is to transport America’s veterans to Washington, D.C., to visit the memorials built to honor their service. Pulling For Honor began in 2016 to raise funds for Eastern Iowa Honor Flight. Teams of 25 compete to pull a Boeing 757. The team who pulls the plane 12 feet the fastest is the winner. Last year, Linn Star Transfer took home the trophy with a time of 6.422 seconds. Do you think your team can beat the record this year?
