We’re celebrating Miracle Plane Pull differently this year. Form a team and have the MacKids Truck Tow Tour visit you in late summer. More details coming soon!
MacKids Truck Tow Tour Raises Awareness And Funds For McMaster Children’s Hospital Foundation
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we will need to celebrate Miracle Plane Pull in a different way this year. In the spirit of innovation, we are proposing the MacKids Truck Tow Tour for 2020.
The biggest change? We’re coming to you!
Under the assumption that everyone will be back to work and able to gather in small groups by late summer, the MacKids Truck Tow Tour will visit registered teams for a special one- or two-hour weekday pull party in late August/early September! The pull truck will be arranged by our presenting sponsor – the Hamilton Bulldogs Foundation.
Once again, teams of 15-20 participants will supply their $25 registration fee – with the hope that they will achieve an additional group fundraising goal of $500.
We know the atmosphere and camaraderie surrounding our events is important, which is why we plan to include the following components:
- A group prize for the team with the best pull time
- A group prize for the team that achieves the highest donation total
- Custom True Hamiltonian t-shirt for each participant
- A team photo shared on social media as a challenge to other groups
- A WestJet voucher draw and other great prizing up for grabs
- A team theme song arranged in advance
Additional details – including the coordination of times and dates – will be forthcoming in the months ahead as we attempt to cram as much excitement into each pull party as possible!
Now more than ever, McMaster Children’s Hospital needs you as they care for our most vulnerable children and youth. During this COVID-19 crisis, that care continues in hospital or via virtual telephone and video visits. It’s critical that teams have the tools to continue this work and, once again, this is where community support can have such a vital impact.
Thank you to Hamilton Bulldogs Foundation and all of our valuable sponsors for maintaining their support of this special initiative.
Since 2013, Miracle Plane Pull has raised nearly $300,000 to support the highest priority needs of McMaster Children’s Hospital, including Ron Joyce Children’s Health Centre. Please help us continue to pull this momentum along through a challenging year for all of us.
