Calgary Meals on Wheels

Calgary Meals on Wheels

Calgary Meals on Wheels is a not-for-profit organization established on November 15, 1965 in response to an official request by the City of Calgary to assist the elderly living alone and those being discharged from hospital with no help available during their recovery. Food is a basic need, a life necessity. What we eat or don’t eat affects our mental, emotional and physical well-being. There is a significant population in our city who, for various reasons, are not able to tend to their basic daily nutrition. With the support of the United Way, Calgary Meals on Wheels is proud to provide programs that directly target the issues of poverty, and hunger.

Plane Pull 2017

About This Campaign

The  annual Plane Pull is September 17 !

Join United Way and UPS at our annual Plane Pull! Due to construction on 64th Avenue, we recommend taking the 11th Street/Beddington Trail exit to get to the event on 22 Aero Drive NE.

Registration is now closed. Participants can no longer join teams.

If you're already registered, be sure to hit your minimum $1,200 fundraising goal!

Have kids interested in pulling?

Pre-registration for the 2017 Kids Pull is now closed. On site registration will be available the day of the event - you will just need to bring your $10 registration fee, and parents/guardians will need to sign a waiver allowing kids to pull.

This year’s top individual fundraiser will win a fly-along on the Calgary Police Service’s HAWC helicopter! (Note: conditions do apply)

The top fundraising team (prizes awarded for both with a corporate match and those without) will win 15 pairs of tickets to Vertigo Theatre for an upcoming theatre performance!

The fastest team will win a behind the scenes Fiasco Gelato tour and tasting event! 

There will also be a prize wheel from Landmark Cinemas so everyone can win!

Why pull a plane?

Come together, raise funds, and have fun! You can make a difference in your city by joining the movement to fight poverty, help kids thrive, and build strong communities in the Calgary area. Teams of 15 pull a 190,000 lb Airbus A300 across the tarmac and fundraise for your community. The three fastest teams will go into a pull off to see who wins bragging rights and team prizes!

Who's invited?

Whether you’re pulling or cheering, there are lots of family-friendly activities for everyone, including a petting zoo, photo booth, face painting, food trucks, and more!

Rules & Regulations:

  • 15 people per team; minimum 4 women
  • Everyone must be over 18 years of age
  • Minimum fundraising total of $1,200 per team
