United Way CSO, City of Kelowna and BC Transit have partnered once again to bring you our signature spring fundraising event, The United Way Bus Pull. 

Saturday, May 26, 2017 from 10 am to 1 pm; Prosper Place parking lot

Teams of 8 will compete for bragging rights and the coveted Community Cup by pulling a BC Transit bus to the finish line! Or at the very least walk away knowing that you and your team are “Everyday Heroes” by competing for top team and individual fundraisers.

2017 Community Cup winners – “the Wolfpack” from Great West Life

Who are you pulling for?   Kids. Youth. Families in need. Seniors.

Winning teams will advance but the real winners are the community members impacted by United Way investments. This is a peer-to-peer fundraising event and the only limitation is your imagination and network! Last years event raised over $22,000 going to kids, families and seniors in our community.

Register your team by calling 250-860-2356 (ask for Jeremy)
