Co-Hosted by the Commercial Aviation Management program at Western University
Saturday, September 22nd
Jet Aircraft Museum, London ON
Thank you to everyone who came out to participate, spectate, and donate! We had a great day and are already planning for 2019! Check out photos from the day here.
Test your strength and your might with this new event from Jesse's Journey and Western's Commercial Aviation Management program!
Register your team of 5 and start fundraising pledges to see who can pull a 10,000lb, beautifully-restored Canadian T33 across the apron at the Jet Aircraft Museum.
Prizes for the fastest times in each division!
All proceeds of funds donated and pledged will go to Duchenne muscular dystrophy research through Jesse's Journey. Duchenne is a fatal form of muscular dystrophy, and there is no cure. Jesse's Journey is the only Canadian charity dedicated to funding research into treatments and a cure. Because of the generous support of our event participants and donors, Jesse's Journey has been able to grant over $9 million to research, and will be granting their 10 millionth dollar this year!
There are 3 divisions available for this event. It's free to register your team in any division, but there are minimum fundraising amounts to participate. If you choose to collect pledges and funds offline, you will need to bring those to the event in order to participate.
Students: Your registration is also free, but your minimum team fundraising goal is less. All team members will need to bring student photo ID to the event in order to be eligible for the reduced fundraising requirement.
Gloves are allowed, but no other pulling assistance (i.e. handles or caribeaners). You'll have to rely on each other to pull that plane as fast as you can!
Event Time: 10:00am - 2:00pm
