10th Annual Plane Pull and Gala postponed
Watch RepublicPlanePull.com for updates on rescheduling
In accordance with the guidelines from the CDC, Republic’s 10th annual Plane Pull scheduled for April 18 and Plane Pull Gala on April 17 have been postponed.
“The health and safety of our participants, sponsors and Associates is our top concern,” said Amy Arnell, Director of the Company’s Corporate and Community Responsibility Department. “We know these annual events are extremely important to our Associates, the local community and the organizations we are supporting, and we look forward to getting them rescheduled as soon as possible.”
A timeline for rescheduling has not yet been determined, but watch RepublicPlanePull.com for updates as they become available.
In the meantime, we thank our vendors, sponsors and volunteers for their support thus far and patience as we work through this extraordinarily fluid situation.
Join us for the 10th Annual
Republic Airways Plane Pull
at 9 a.m. TBA, 2020!
Showing trust, respect and care for one another is one of our Guiding Principles at Republic Airways. We’re driven to use our time, talent and treasure to help others – children, in particular – as a strong supporter of nonprofit and charitable organizations that benefit the health and well-being of today’s youth. Our biggest fundraiser is our annual Plane Pull, an epic tug-of-war with a 24-ton aircraft that has raised nearly $3 million for children's charities since 2011.
Our key partners for this event include Indiana Children’s Wish Fund, Peyton Manning Children’s Hospital, Riley Children’s Foundation and A Kid Again. Each year, our event gets bigger and better, and that’s due largely to our army of selfless Associates, volunteers and generous sponsors. Join us!
