On Sept. 6, the Champions Together Committee from Carmel High School competed in the annual Special Olympic Plane Pull at the Indianapolis Metropolitan Airport.

The team raised $1,742, with all the proceeds benefitting Special Olympics Indiana. They pulled a FedEx 757 airplane 12 feet in 8.35 seconds to win the High School Division and took home the hardware.

The committee was created last year with the help of students Abby Abel and Molly Mcguire, and with the faculty support of Joe Stuelpe and Bruce Wolf.

At CHS the inclusive committee has representatives from almost every IHSAA sport as well as representatives from the Best Buddies program at their school. The committee was created based off of the statewide movement called “Champions Together” that promotes the inclusion of those with intellectual disabilities within their schools. Their mission is to raise awareness and to create an atmosphere of acceptance of those with intellectual disabilities.
