2017 UPS and United Way Plane Pull

2017 UPS and United Way Plane Pull

About This Campaign

Join us in making the impossible, possible. By pulling together, we can help kids, families and seniors in our community.

At the UPS Plane Pull for United Way, each team will test its strength by pulling a Boeing 757 jet across the tarmac at Vancouver International Airport. That’s over 127,000 lbs!

Each team must have at least 15 members and raise $750 to participate. All dollars raised are 100% local and help empower kids, families, and seniors.

Learn more about United Way’s work at www.uwlm.ca

    More photos to come!!! The senior and junior teams had another great pull this year! We had a special appearance from Menka, Miss Fiji Canada who pulled a plane with her crown and sash on! The senior team clocked in at 20.09 seconds, good enough for 7th place overall and we bettered our time from last year. Both teams took home the Best Dressed/Team Spirit prize again and as a thank you, each participant will receive a movie ticket (thanks Cineplex). And thanks to my donors, I was the top individual fundraiser. Bravo to you and your families for joining us on a Sunday; to Mario for flying into town early to be with us; to all our donors; to the Aimia planning team of Delicia, Charlene and Alli; and finally, to the United Way and UPS for hosting such a special event.
