Campaign 2014 kicks off with hundreds #PullingForThePeg.

Planes pulling. Perogies piled on plates. And a bold goal of raising $20.7 million this year to help make poverty a thing of the past, see every child enter school ready to learn, support strong communities and healthy people and make sure help is there when any of us needs it.

Our 2014 Campaign Cabinet pulling a DC9.
