The United Way of Winnipeg will kick off their 2012 campaign and reveal their fundraising goal today.

The event coincides with the ninth annual Plane Pull, as 49 teams of 1,200 people from workplaces throughout the city compete to haul a 727 and DC10 the fastest.

Red River College’s Stevenson Campus will host the event, as campaign chair Doug Finkbeiner reveals the big number the organization aims to reach in donations. Olympian Jennifer Botterill will also be there to lend a hand on behalf of RBC.

The fundraising goal and plane pull begins at 11 a.m.
