On Sunday, June 12, for the second year running, the University of Toronto Libraries fielded a team to participate in the 2016 Orbis Plane Pull for Sight.  Led by Dr. Jack Leong, director of the Richard Charles Lee Canada-Hong Kong Library, the team members combined their strength to pull a Boeing 757 cargo plane and raise money for Orbis, an organization dedicated to training eye doctors and restoring vision worldwide.

We wish to thank everyone who came out to participate in the plane pull, as well as those who supported us with donations.  A special mention goes to Hon. Dr. Vivienne Poy, whose substantial contribution helped us raise $2 417.  Thank you!
