We are excited to announce the
3rd annual Plane Pull for Sight Calgary!
Last year you helped us exceed our fundraising goal, and we hope to continue that unbelievable success in 2019! Be prepared to bring your determination, strength and positive attitude to help your team pull a 60-tonne FedEx 757 cargo plane along a 20 ft course in the least amount of time!
Aside from the pull itself, the event will offer other fun games and activities for all participants and their families to enjoy, such as a giant obstacle course, bouncy castle, face-painting and many more exciting things to come! Apart from pull participants, the kids will also have a chance to show their superhero strength and pull the plane in two time slots during the day.
