Compassion will take flight at Fort Lauderdale Executive Airport (FXE) at 8 a.m. on Saturday, April 13, 2019, during the Uptown 5K on the Runway. Trustbridge Hospice Foundation is partnering with FXE to host a 5K on the airport’s runway, and for the first time in FXE’s history, people, not planes, will take off from the runway during this inaugural run/walk event!
Trustbridge and FXE invite community members of all ages and abilities to be part of this one-of-a-kind experience – no boarding pass or luggage fees required.
Visit the Uptown 5K Urban Village
After taking in the sights and sounds on FXE’s runway, participants will disembark into the Uptown 5K Urban Village for post-race fun and festivities. The Village will feature live entertainment, a kids zone, food stations, team tent celebrations, and much more.
About the Uptown 5K on the Runway
Trustbridge Hospice Foundation is partnering with Fort Lauderdale Executive Airport to host the Uptown 5K on the Runway to help fulfill the airport’s mission of attracting businesses to the area, helping tenants prosper, and benefiting the community. The 5K event supports FXE’s dedication to its neighbors, tenants, and employees by raising awareness for Trustbridge’s commitment to providing extraordinary care for everyone in our community, including those without insurance coverage or the ability to pay.
All proceeds from the event benefit the Trustbridge Hospice Foundation to help fund programs and services Trustbridge offers, including comfort care, charitable care, music therapy, pet therapy, adult and children’s bereavement services, and children’s camps.
On Saturday, May 18th, sailboats from throughout South Florida will gather off the shores of Fort Lauderdale Beach to compete in the 22nd Annual Hospice Regatta! For years, this highly competitive sailing event has raised funds to support hospice care for patients and families coping with a life-limiting illness.
Following a day of racing, sailors, guests and supporters of the Hospice Regatta will gather for the Post-race Awards Dinner at Coral Ridge Yacht Club. Starting at 6 pm, attendees will enjoy a dinner, live entertainment, silent auction, and dancing.
Our skipper’s meeting will take place on Friday, May 17 at 6 pm. Racers will receive their start times and race pack at this meeting. One crew member from each yacht is required to attend.
Fundraising Challenge: In addition to participating in the Regatta, you can support your favorite skipper and crew or cheer on your sailing club as they compete to win 2019 bragging rights and the perpetual Fundraising Challenge trophy.
