Pull a plane. Literally.

Picture this. You and your team step on to the tarmac at Billy Bishop Airport – planes taking off and landing behind you – and you put the rope over your shoulder. You look ahead to see a stunning view of the city. You look behind you and there’s YOUR team. The people you spend most of your day with doing amazing things for your organization. The countdown is on for another opportunity to accomplish something great together. On October 20th, your team of up to 12 people, will race against the clock by attempting to pull a 37,000-pound plane for 100 metres. Think your team has what it takes?

Here’s how it works:

  • Put your team together. Who’s got what it takes in your organization to bring their A-game and challenge the 44-second record?
  • Register online. Pick a team name and identify one captain plus up to 11 team members. Secure your spot first, and add to your team later. There are only 15 pull times available.
  • Pull your weight by reaching a minimum $4,000 fundraising goal to participate. This is a pretty exclusive experience. There’s no general public access here.
  • Please note that this event is open to adults ages 18 and older.

Why participate?

You’ll combine team building with supporting an important cause AND you’ll get an experience that you won’t get anywhere else.

Challenge your mind and body with the task at hand and nurture your heart and soul by supporting people in your community who are affected by ALS.

Pulling a plane may sound difficult, but it’s nothing compared to the weight that 3,000 Canadians and their families carry with them every day living with ALS.

It’s a devastating and terminal disease that causes gradual paralysis. We need your help to invest in community-based support, advocacy, and research for a future without ALS.

These are the reasons why we all need to Pull Together to End ALS.

Event Highlights:

  • Canadian event super host and comedian – Justin Landry
  • Exclusive access for registered teams to operating Billy Bishop Airport
  • Unique team building experience and personal challenge
  • Original event day experience that includes a first class lounge on the tarmac, DJ, and surprises
  • Silent auction featuring experience prizes like a city helicopter tour and a Porter Airlines ticket to anywhere Porter flies
  • All levels of physical fitness are welcome – no one here is a professional plane-puller. Prizes are awarded in a variety of categories
  • The best day ever
