About This Campaign
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
