TOPEKA, Kan. (KSNT)– People got a different kind of workout on Saturday, pulling a plane to help fundraise for the Northeast Kansas Ronald McDonald House.

Ten teams competed to pull an 80,000-pound vintage airplane 40-feet.

Each team was asked to raise money that will go back to the helping the Ronald McDonald House in Topeka operate, and helping families in need.

“Ninety-two percent of our money comes from the community,” Mindee Reece said, CEO of RMDH. “Either through grants from businesses or local donations, and participation in our fundraiser.”
