Third Annual Pull for Kids
Saturday, May 3, 2003
Iroquois Park Sports Centre, Whitby

The Durham Area Office is proud to announce their Third Annual PULL for Kids presented by Faser Ford Sales Limited on Saturday May 3rd.

The Lung Association's PULL for Kids is a fund raising event in which 10 to 12 team members raise pledges to compete in pulling a pumper truck tug-of-war style. We are excited to announce that we will also be holding a Mini-PULL for children aged 10-14 who will pull an SUV.

Many fun-filled activities are planned for this family event. Try your luck in our silent auction, sponsor the Oshawa Fire Fighters or The Whitby Fire Fighters or come along and cheer on the best team.

Join us and PULL for the best team. PULL 10 of your friends together and help us in the fight against asthma. This year's goal is to raise $20,000. All money raised will support our Asthma Action Helpline and help everyone to breathe easier.
