Fortney & Weygandt participated in the 7th Annual CLE Plane Pull benefiting the Special Olympics of Ohio on Saturday in the I-X Center parking lot. Teams of 20 people had one chance to pull a Boeing 737, which weighed over 100,000 pounds, 12 feet in the fastest time. The event raised over $68,000 for the Special Olympics of Ohio.
