Compassion will take flight at Fort Lauderdale Executive Airport (FXE) on Saturday, November 16, 2024, for the 6th annual Uptown 5K on the Runway. Trustbridge Hospice Foundation and FXE invite community members of all ages to participate in a 5K fun run/walk on the FXE runway, where people, not planes, will take off from the runway. Over the past five years, over 4,000 people have participated in this one-of-a-kind experience – no boarding pass or luggage fees required. Boarding begins at 7:30am and Takeoff is at 8:30am. ​

Although there is no registration fee, all participants are required to register.

After taking in the sights and sounds on the FXE runway, participants will disembark into the Uptown 5K Village for fun, refreshments and festivities. Join us and celebrate Aviation, the Uptown community and Compassion Towards Others. All proceeds benefit Trustbridge Hospice Foundation.

For questions or sponsorship information, please contact Brittney Farwell at bfarwell@tbfdn.org.

Thank you to everyone who supported the 2023 event and helped us raise over $116,000 to support Trustbridge Hospice Foundation! To view photos, click here.

See you on the runway this November!
