This year, all proceeds from the Runway 5K will benefit a scholarship fund for pilots to attend flight training school. The goal is to raise $50,000 to address the nation’s critical pilot shortage, which has impacted travelers throughout the country. Airport Day has plenty of family-friendly activities for everyone to enjoy! Don’t miss out on the fun. See you there!
