Plane Pull

Assemble a crew of your strongest, most caring employees, co-workers and friends to compete with teams from across Winnipeg to pull a McDonnell Douglas DC-9 (90,000lb) or Boeing 727 (191,000lb) across 20 feet of tarmac! It’s a short-haul flight to the finish line for bragging rights and the chance to experience what it means to pull together and change lives in Winnipeg.

Register your team soon to make sure you secure a spot for this sell-out event! A registration fee of $250 will be invoiced to your workplace, and includes lunch for everyone and a chance at some great prizes!

Your team can also fundraise which will provide a mighty boost to your workplace campaign, AND give you a chance at even more amazing prizes…

Team Spirit Prize

Plane Pull is all about doing good and having fun while you’re at it.  The Team Spirit Prize is awarded to the team that best embraces the spirit of the event. So think up a costume and practice your cheer and your team could win one round of free mini golf at the Golf Dome!

Team Steam Prize

Rev your engines and show us that your crew has what it takes to pull our McDonnell Douglas DC-9 (90,000lb) or Boeing 727 (191,000lb) across 20 feet of tarmac the fastest.
