                            United Way Halton & Hamilton together with UPS®,
                invite you to the 4th Annual Plane Pull on September 7th, 2019.  
                                    Join us in raising $40,000 for United Way.

                                                 This is your chance to play tug-of-war against a 200,000 pound Airbus A300.

How It Works

Each team will get one opportunity to pull the plane 50 feet across the tarmac in the shortest amount of time. The team with the shortest combined time wins bragging rights and great prizes!

There is no registration fee; each team must fundraise at least $750 to be eligible for prizing. This counts towards your workplace campaign total.

Once your team is registered, your team and individual fundraising pages make it easy to approach your friends, family, and neighbours to help you reach your goal. Tax receipts will be provided for all donations over $25.

Prizes will be awarded to the three fastest teams, top team and individual fundraisers, and teams with the most spirit (costumes are encouraged!)

Bring your friends, colleagues and family!

Whether you are pulling the plane or cheering from the sidelines, there are plenty of family-friendly activities to keep everyone entertained including a face painting, bouncy castle, food trucks, and more!

Rules & Regulations

15 people per team, must be 18 or older to participate.

No upfront registration fee, but each team must fundraise a minimum of $750 to participate.
