We do a lot of team events for good causes at work. In June it was Bike MS. In July it was Relay for Life. In September it will be Light the Night. And this doesn't include the endless array of "fun runs" in the Denver area that are primarily about fun, rather than fundraising, but still benefit a local cause. Like Color Me Rad, the Color Run, the Electric Run, the Ugly Sweater Run, or the hilarious gem of an event that some of my friends did yesterday, the Tap 'n' Run.
In early August we were recruited to do something new as a fundraiser.
Pull a plane.
|Here's our plane!|

|Plane pull in action|
When you first start pulling you feel like time is flying by while your airplane is standing still. And then it starts to move. That whole science thing "a thing in motion stays in motion"? It's true. Once it starts to move you move 12 feet quickly. Most teams, including ours, were done in under 10 seconds.
