Community & Special Events

CLE is an active member if the Northeast Ohio community. From charity events and donations to community outreach, Cleveland Hopkins is proud to be part of our thriving region. Some of our charitable partners include Special Olympics Ohio and the USO. 

In addition to hosting our own airport-related special events, we support communities by sponsoring and participating in select industry and aviation-related events. Our involvement includes staffing exhibits and publicizing events that tie into the airport’s activities and help increase awareness of the Airport System’s community outreach and educational programs and services.

Special Olympics Ohio Plane Pull

On July 15, 2017, the Cleveland Hopkins International Airport (CLE) will host the 8th Annual Special Olympics Ohio Plane Pull®. This event will test teams of 20 people to see how fast they can pull a Boeing 737. Each team is required to raise a minimum of $750 in donations. All money raised will go directly to support year-round sports training and competition opportunities for the more than 23,000 athletes of Special Olympics Ohio. 

Prizes will be awarded to the fastest teams in each division.
