Haul for Hope Hits the Tarmac for the First Time at Billy Bishop Airport

On Saturday, September 23, Billy Bishop Airport hosted the first-ever Haul for Hope Challenge in support of Hope Air.

Twelve teams put their strength to the test and competed for the title of 2023 Haul for Hope Champions by racing against the clock to pull a Porter Airlines Dash 8 plane for 100 meters. PortsToronto was proud to have two teams competing in the inaugural pull – Team YTZ, and our Combined Services team. 

After an impressive showing of skill, grit and determination from all teams, team Infinite was crowned the champions with a pull clocking in at 39.43 seconds, and having fundraised the most for Hope Air. 

Congratulations to all Haul for Hope participants who took part in this exciting and impactful event in support of Hope Air.

Since 2016, Billy Bishop Airport has been proud to support Hope Air in their mission to provide medical travel assistance to Canadian families in need. Last year, Hope Air provided more than 10,000 travel arrangements, enabling nearly 2,000 patients to reach life-saving medical care.
