Seventeen teams tested their strength against a 757 aircraft at the Burlington International Airport Saturday, September 16, as part of the annual American Cancer Society Pulling for Hope in collaboration with Heritage Aviation, Pratt & Whitney, JetBlue, and FedEx Express. Competing in the ultimate tug of war with a plane, 290 participants raised funds to support lifesaving cancer research and patient programs and services for Vermonters. According to Jennifer Clark, ACS Northeast region community development manager, $27,500 was raised.
