Participants in Appleton's Pulling for Honor event hope to raise money to fully fund an Old Glory Honor Flight.

Saturday, people formed into teams of 20 to pull a Fedex Airbus plane that weights nearly 200,000 pounds.

Organizers say the challenging event is a great fundraising opportunity.

"This year, they're looking to out do last year's money raised by about $10,000," Lorraine Van Kampen said. "So we're hoping to raise $85,000 out here today."

Organizers hope the money raised can help 100 veterans go on an Old Glory Honor Flight.
