Due to COVID-19, the Uptown 5K on the Runway is being re-routed. This year, compassion will take flight virtually for the Uptown VK Runway to Runway, presented by Aetna. The Fort Lauderdale Executive Airport (FXE) is partnering once again with Trustbridge Hospice Foundation to host this virtual month-long challenge, taking off from FXE on Saturday, November 14th and landing into Key West on Saturday, December 12th.
Last year over 1,000 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. This event celebrates aviation, the Uptown community and compassion towards others.
The virtual opening ceremony will take place on November 14th at 8:00 a.m., and teams will have 4 weeks to virtually make their way down to Key West by tracking their miles (walking, running, swimming, biking, etc.) through a challenge website that will be provided once you register.
