Region – “Team Binkeez,” a group of friends and volunteers of Binkeez for Comfort, was one of 30 teams that participated in “Pulling for Love, Hope, and Comfort” to raise money for the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. Led by founder Susan Posterro, the team pulled a 727 jet at Rhode Island's T.F. Green Airport Oct. 5, as part of the seventh annual MS Jet Pull organized by the Rhode Island Chapter of the National MS Society.

Binkeez for Comfort, a nonprofit organization that makes blankets for ill children and adults, donated $1,000 to the cause. For more information, visit binkeezforcomfort.org.
