Today I participated in the United Way Plane Pull with 14 of my co-workers. We had to work together to pull an 81,000 kg UPS Airbus A300 plane 15 meters. It took our team just over 17 seconds to do the pull but unfortunately that wasn’t quite fast enough to pull out a win. The winning team was from the University of Calgary and was full of Dino (football) players and speedskaters. Sadly our merry band of desk warriors couldn’t quite compete. Regardless, it was a great day and we raised money for a great cause. “How much?” you ask…I have no idea as we haven’t been given a total yet.
Here are some pics from the fun event. I really appreciated how the United Way made it a family friendly event complete with Lego building, crafts and a petting zoo!
All in all, it’s a great story to tell & I’m glad I did it.
