Be part of the ultimate Man-vs-Machine Challenge!
Enter a team in the MS Plane Pull®.

The MS Plane Pull is a giant tug-of-war between your team and a huge aircraft weighing more than 127,520 pounds. Team trophies are awarded in different categories, plus team members can earn incentives based on their own individual contributions collected.

How can you compete in this battle of strength, stamina and fun? Recruit friends, family members and co-workers to form your team. You must have 25 members on your team and raise a minimum of $1,000.

Your participation means we will be working to support programs, services, and research sponsored by the Greater New England Chapter, National Multiple Sclerosis Society, and that makes a huge difference to the people who must fight MS every day of their lives.
