United Way, UPS team up to host plane tugging competition

MIAMI (WSVN) - The United Way of Miami-Dade teamed up with UPS to host a plane tugging competition.

Groups of 12 met at the UPS hub at Miami International Airport, Sunday, to pull a 164-ton Boeing aircraft 42 feet down the runway.

Miami-Dade Police officers were among those flexing their muscles.

In addition to the feats of strength — families were treated to activities, food and games.

The day raised funds and awareness for the United Way’s work in education, financial stability and health.
