Katten Muchin Rosenman LLP announced today that the firm sponsored and participated in the 13th annual Special Olympics Southern California Plane Pull to raise awareness and funding for athletes with intellectual disabilities.

A team of Katten attorneys, staff, family and friends from the firm’s Los Angeles Century City, Downtown and Orange County offices competed against 60 other teams in the Special Olympics Southern California event, testing their strength and stamina in an attempt to be the fastest to pull a 124,000-pound FedEx Boeing 757 airplane 12 feet down the runway.

The Katten team, led by honorary co-pilot Rachel Osterbach, a Special Olympics athlete, global messenger and cast member of A&E’s “Born This Way” reality TV series, tugged the jet in 6.95 seconds, only one and a half seconds slower than the winner.

The annual event, held Saturday at Long Beach Airport, raised more than $198,000 – a record-setting figure – for Special Olympics athletes.
