Red River College's Stevenson Campus played host to over 1,300 Winnipeggers from the business, labour, government and non-profit sectors on September 18th for the 6th Annual United Way of Winnipeg Plane Pull.
This event — which has teams competing against each other to see who can move a commercial aircraft the fastest using just people power — is the kickoff for the United Way's 2009 Campaign.
This year's Campaign Chair is RRC President Dr. Jeff Zabudsky, who can be seen in this photo leading the Campaign Cabinet team in their plane pull attempt.
The fundraising goal for this year's United Way Campaign is $18,218,778. Zabudsky announced on Friday that the organization is already well on its way toward that target, as over $7 million has already been raised.
