United Way’s annual Plane Pull

  • UPS Customer Centre 22 Aero Drive Northeast Calgary, AB, T2E 8Z9 Canada (map)

Hosted by the United Way of Calgary and Area

You’re invited to participate in United Way’s annual Plane Pull event, in partnership with UPS.

This is a fantastic opportunity to come together as a community for a fun day of friendly competition, all in support of United Way and giving back to your local community.

We have created a team specifically for the tech industry in Calgary. We need 15-20 people to sign up for this team, and they will be tasked with fundraising a total of $1,200. You can contribute yourself, or share with friends and family to fundraise. You then get to pull an Airbus A300 across a tarmac, and compete to see who can do it in the fastest time!

When: Sunday, September 16
Where: UPS Customer Centre – 22 Aero Drive NE

What is Plane Pull? Well, it’s exactly what it sounds like: it is local people pulling together and doing local good by literally pulling a plane – a 200,000 pound plane to be exact.

Sign up for the Calgary Tech Community team here!

* All donations to United Way will be directly invested back into the community in the areas of overcoming poverty, helping kids succeed, and building strong communities.
