Is the purpose of this just publicity? I wonder who coordinates this. I remember they brought one of Airborne Express's new 767's into MoF's lot once when I was there, and a specially painted 727 for the Rendezvous in Space stuff.
Boeing, or AirTran or someone must be especially proud

AIRLINERS.NET CREW PHOTO SCREENER
20 youths affiliated with Chris Kids, an Atlanta-based charity helping abused and neglected kids, will manually pull a Boeing 737-700 for 65 feet. Helping them will be AirTran Airways Chairman and CEO Joe Leonard, AirTran Airways President and COO Bob Fornaro, and Boeing President and CEO Harry Stonecipher plus 50 AirTran Airways crew members.
The children are in Seattle to receive a $65,000 donation from Boeing, AirTran Airways, engine manufacturer CFMI and GECAS, the aircraft leasing company. Crew members of the airline, which currently flies only Boeing 717s, are in Seattle to pick up their first Boeing Next-Generation 737.
