2019 Plane Pull

2019 Plane Pull

About This Campaign

United Way and UPS are excited to partner together again for the 8th Annual Plane Pull. Mark your calendars and sign up your team today. Registration deadline – August 26.

Sunday, September 15
UPS Customer Centre – 22 Aero Drive NE

Since launching, this event has raised more than $700,000 for our community. Local people like you coming together to pull a 200,000 pound plane across the tarmac. This isn’t for the faint of heart and neither is solving our cities #unignorable issues, but together we can do local good. There will also be fun activities for the whole family to enjoy.

This year we are excited to introduce a new twist to the pulling game, Industry's Best competition. More information to come.
