Frequently Asked Questions:
What is the Big Brothers Big Sisters of Mid-Maine Plane Pull?
Big Brothers Big Sisters of Mid-Maine (BBBSMM) Plane Pull is a fun, outdoor event to raise funds to support mentoring programs for local children facing adversity. It is a unique, fun, competitive event where teams of up to 10 people pull an aircraft on the tarmac for the fastest pull time! A trophy is awarded to the winning team!
How can I get involved?
Sponsor and enter a team! There are different levels of sponsorships available that include team(s) benefits. A single or independent team entry fee is $500. See our Sponsor Menu or contact us for more information.
What is the minimum amount that a single team needs to raise to participate in the event?
Plane Pull teams, independent of sponsorship, must raise a minimum of $500 on or before event day. Of course we hope you raise more than this. Keep in mind that $1,500 supports a Big and Little match for one year, and any amount you raise is helping ignite potential in your community. Recognition and awards are given to the highest fundraisers!
How can I donate to my team or another team?
Most companies/teams do their own in-house fundraising, then bring a check/cash to the event. We can also take credit card payments on the day of the event. Donations to a team can be made securely online HERE. Send the link in emails to friends, family and co-workers to have them donate to your team! Be sure to reference the team name.
Checks can also be mailed to: Big Brothers Big Sisters of Mid-Maine, 66 Elm Street, Suite 100, Camden, Maine 04843
What if my company offers a matching gift?
Matching gifts are a great way to raise additional funds for your team! We must receive the matching gift BEFORE the Plane Pull to receive credit for your fundraising total. Complete and submit a request for matching funds with your employer.
How many people can be on a Plane Pull Team?
Plane Pull teams consist of 8 to 10 people. All participants must be 18 or older, and sign a waiver at check-in.
What should I bring to the Plane Pull?
