JetPullLogoSaturday (13 September) was a perfect summer day in Richmond at the 2014 UPS Jet Pull for the United Way and SkyLink Express was a proud partner in this great fundraiser.

As in years past, the United Way of the Lower Mainland fundraiser was held at the UPS Vancouver Gateway. However, this year’s event added Plane Pulls. UPS provided a B757 global jet freighter for adult teams to pull and SkyLink Express fielded a C208 feeder turboprop freighter for the kid’s teams.

Fun was had by everyone throughout the day and the event raised over $16,000 for United Way.

SkyLink Express is very proud of its team of volunteers who participated in this great event. Aiding a great cause while bringing smiles to children’s faces; what a wonderful way to spend a summer day.
