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
