United Way Plane Pull 2017
September 18, 2017
Now in its 14 year, the United Way Winnipeg’s annual Plane Pull event felt unapologetically Winnipeg Friday morning as groups of people cradling warm beverages braved chilly September winds as they waited for their chance to wage tug of war with an airplane. All of it, in the name of giving back to the community.
MITT was once again in the mix with a team of more than 20 staff members—collectively known as Team All MITT-ey—that successfully mobilized a hulking Hercules aircraft down a short patch of asphalt. High fives and a feast of Sal’s Nips and ketchup chips followed.
The experience was brief but not so the cause: the positive effects the United Way Winnipeg has on the community can literally last a lifetime. Please consider supporting this worthwhile cause: https://secure.e2rm.com/registrant/TeamFundraisingPage.aspx?teamID=770011.
