$107,000+ raised as Calgarians pull together

A record-breaking number of Calgarians pulled together to raise more than $107,000 at our sixth annual Plane Pull on September 17, 2017. With this support, the event has now raised over half a million dollars in the past six years. 

Forty-five teams used their superhuman power to compete in a challenge that saw them pull a 190,000 lb UPS plane across the tarmac in the fastest time possible. This year, kids were once again able to pull a smaller plane as well. 

This event was emceed by Jermain Franklin from TSN, and was generously sponsored by UPS Canada. 

Thank you to everyone who pulled, donated, cheered, sponsored, and volunteered at this year's event!
