Plane Pull for Sight 2020

Following the recommendations of our municipal, provincial and national public health authorities, we’ve made the necessary decision to reschedule our Plane Pull for Sight events in Toronto, Calgary and Vancouver.

The health and safety of our Plane Pull community is, of course, our top priority. And while we’re disappointed we won’t see everyone this summer as planned, we’re very excited to announce our new fall dates for the 20/20 Plane Pull for Sight!

Plane Pull for Sight moves to the fall

The COVID-19 pandemic has created hardships for everyone, including Orbis. The extraordinary need and incredible importance of what we do at Orbis has not changed, but we’re facing unprecedented challenges that threaten our ability to deliver our sight-saving, life-changing work.

Plane Pull for Sight is our biggest and most important fundraiser of the year. That’s why we need you – our Orbis family – to help us through this. We need your support now more than we’ve ever needed it before.

So register your team of friends, family or co-workers today. Start your fundraising now and get ready for an exciting day of team building and family fun, all in support of Orbis Canada and our mission to end avoidable blindness around the world.

With our new dates now set, we just have one question for you…are you ready for the ultimate tug-of-war challenge? Are you ready to take on a feat of mental and physical strength, stamina and teamwork? Do you think you have what it takes to pull a massive 60-tonne FedEx 757 cargo plane 20 feet across the tarmac faster than everyone else? Well, here's your chance to prove it!

We Need Your Support More than Ever Before

Register My Team Today

Proudly supported by National Event Sponsor, FedEx, Plane Pull for Sight is our annual fundraiser that pits your team of up to 20 family, friends, colleagues or co-workers against a 60-tonne 757 cargo plane in the ultimate tug-of-war.

Get your team together, fundraise at least $2,500 and join us on the tarmac for the 20/20 Plane Pull for Sight. Buckle up for an awesome day of high-energy team-building fun for the whole family as you compete for the ultimate bragging rights.

Along with the pull itself, there's tons of fun games and activities for everyone to enjoy. Bring your family and friends to cheer you on and experience all that the Plane Pull for Sight has to offer.

A climbing wall, giant obstacle course, bouncy castles, sports zone, face-painting, planes to explore and so much more will be available on the tarmac. And of course, the always popular, Kids' Pull will be back! We'll have two pulls for kids - one in the morning and one in the afternoon.

Don't think you can gather a team of 20 people? No problem! There's always plenty of eager volunteers or members of other teams who are happy to jump in and help your team pull. So don't let that stop you. Just get as many people as you can, sign up now, start fundraising...and get ready to pull!
