Beam Legal Team, LLC in Chicago is proud to announce that Paralegal Brittany Votruba recently participated in the “Plane Pull” fundraising event! This exciting tug-of-war competition raised funds for Special Olympics Illinois, which is an organization that is near and dear to our hearts as a law firm that often represents children born with lifelong disabilities and birth injuries.
On Saturday, April 29, 2023, people from across Illinois gathered at Lewis University to compete in the Plane Pull fundraiser. The tug-of-war contest featured several divisions, including one for public safety officers, one for fitness enthusiasts, and so on. The teams were challenged to pull an entire aircraft 12 feet as fast as possible. While that sounds like a superhero feat, real heroism was shown in the way that so many people came together to benefit the Special Olympics, including Brittany and her son, Cruz.
This was the third-annual Plane Pull fundraising competition. Its resounding success likely means it won’t be the last, though. We want to thank Brittany again for the support that she shows our communities, and we look forward to seeing her heroics at the next Plane Pull fundraiser!
