Pull a full-size airplane at the Jet Pull for United Way

Aug 24 2017, 7:58 am

If you’re on the hunt for a unique way to give back, look no further.

UPS and United Way are holding their annual Jet Pull in September to help move families out of poverty.

Here’s the deal: get a team of at least 15 people together and register online. Each person sets up a fundraising page that can be sent to family and friends for support, and if each team manages to collectively raise at least $1,200, they get to pull a 190,000 pound Airbus A300 across the tarmac and fundraise for your community.

When all is said and done, it’s a pretty cool spectacle to behold.

The best part? It’s a 100% family-friendly event, including a plane pull for kids, petting zoo, face painting, bouncy castle, food trucks, team and individual prizes, and more.

As a bonus, this year winners get some to experience some cool things. The top individual fundraiser will win a fly-along on the Calgary Police Service’s HAWC helicopter. 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 and the fastest team will win a behind the scenes Fiasco Gelato tour and tasting event!

Help make it a reality.
