Anyone who can muster donations and a team of 20 still can join one of Delaware's oddest charity fundraisers, pulling an airplane on a rope.
The 10th Annual Delaware National Guard Plane Pull for Special Olympics is set for Sunday at the Delaware Air National Guard Base near New Castle, starting at 9 a.m.
"Last-minute teams are welcome and so are spectators," said Special Olympics spokesman Jonathan Buzby. "It's free and open to the public -- and it really is quite a sight."
The event, with more than 200 teams over the years, has raised more than $150,000, he said.
More than 30 high school and adult teams from New Castle and Kent counties are expected to participate. High school teams raise at least $250 in donations, while the minimum is $500 for adult teams.
Registrations will be accepted through the end of the day on Friday, Buzby said.
We're gonna be there
