SOUTH PORTLAND, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- Local celebrities were on hand to volunteer for the 8th annual MS Plane Pull.
This year, FedEx sponsored the event and provided the hardware.

Teams of 25 men and women of all ages competed for several awards, including fastest time. Some donned costumes.

Last year's winners in the time trials, Pratt and Whitney, were on hand to defend their title.

Each team had to raise at least one-thousand dollars to complete, but most surpassed those goals.

From weightlifters to grandmothers, a good time was had by all.

Pratt and Whitney's 2012 1st place time was beaten this year by professional football team Southern Maine Raging Bulls. This year's pull raised over twenty-five thousand dollars.
