On Saturday the Olympia Moving & Storage Virginia branch came together for a great purpose: to pull a plane to support Special Olympics Virginia.
Team Olympia pulled a 164K lbs airplane to raise money for athletes with intellectual disabilities. Their pull time clocked in at 7.01 seconds.
Olympia Moving & Storage is an official sponsor of the Dulles Day Plane Pull. We provided free logistics support for the event including receiving and delivery services for supplies and event set-up and break down.
Says Ellen Head, Director of Development for Special Olympics Virginia: “Thank you! The guys are GREAT! Victor and Adrian are the absolute best. We are packed and event READY!”
Olympia also exhibited at the event, which saw 30,000 attendees and participation from 70 teams. It was a great day to raise money and bring awareness to the wonderful programs Special Olympics provides for children and adults with intellectual disabilities and their families.
Special thanks to the following who contributed to our fundraising campaign:

In 2013, Olympia Moving contributed over $45,000 in monetary and in-kind donations for Special Olympics. Through our work with this organization, we’re inspired by athletes with intellectual disabilities, and see how competing in sports give these athletes confidence, determination, power, and joy.
