Compassion will take flight on Saturday, April 18, 2020, at Fort Lauderdale Executive Airport (FXE) at the 2nd Annual Uptown 5K on the Runway, presented by Aetna. The Executive Airport is partnering once again with Trustbridge Hospice Foundation to host a 5K fun run/walk on the airport’s runway. The event celebrates aviation, the Uptown community and compassion towards others.
Last year over 1000 people, not planes, took off from the runway for this one of a kind experience. Trustbridge Hospice Foundation and FXE invite community members to participate – no boarding pass or luggage fees required. Boarding begins at 7:30 am and takeoff is at 8:30 am.
After taking in the sights and sounds of the runway, participants will disembark into the Uptown 5K Urban Village for post 5K fun and festivities. The Village will feature live entertainment, a kids zone, an interactive aviation tent, food, team tent celebrations and much more.
