Teams are required to fundraise a minimum of $3,000 for the opportunity to take part in this awesome challenge and the chance to win some great prizes along the way. And don't forget about the sweet bragging rights you'll earn for being the fastest pulling team.

Each year, Plane Pull for Sight welcomes corporate teams from many leading Canadian companies and institutions, including FedEx, RBC, CIBC, Hatch,, CAE, Herzig Eye Institute, University of Toronto, and many more.

Orbis Canada's Plane Pull for Sight is finally back on the tarmac!

Along with the pull itself, the event includes a variety of fun games and activities for participants and their families to enjoy.

New for 2022
, the event will feature three additional team challenges to go along with pulling the plane. Teams will earn points in each challenge to ultimately determine which team will be crowned Plane Pull for Sight champion.

So get your team together, fundraise at least $3,000 and join us in Calgary, Vancouver or Toronto for a day of team building, team spirit, friendly competition and a whole lot of fun!

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!
