On Friday, September 13, 2019, a team of staff and lawyers from the MLT Aikins Winnipeg office participated in the 16th annual United Way Winnipeg 2019 Plane Pull and campaign kickoff.
The firm’s team joined 80 other teams from the local business community to take turns pulling a Lockheed C-130 Hercules or a Boeing 727 aircraft. At the event, Jeff Goy, President and CEO of Wawanesa Insurance and the volunteer Campaign Chair for United Way Winnipeg’s 2019/2020 Campaign announced a goal to raise $21.6 million this year for the community fund. The Plane Pull saw more than 2,000 people come out to support the United Way and brought in more than $88,673 towards the unprecedented goal.
