APPLETON — A team from Kaukauna Clinic participated this weekend in the Old Glory Honor Flight’s Pulling for Honor event to raise money to take veterans to Washington, D.C. to see memorials in their honor.
The clinic shared photos on its Facebook page of the event that took place Saturday at the Appleton International Airport.
The Kaukauna Clinic team, which included staff and Menasha High school wresters, was able to move a 60,000 lb plane in an impressive 11 seconds.
The winner of this year’s competition was the Dodge Correctional team with a time of 7.488 seconds.
Pulling for Honor is a plane pull competition fundraiser where each team, comprised of 20 people, pulls an airplane twelve feet.
Teams are required to raise a minimum of $1,500 in order to take part in the competition.
