Become a PHFive K Charitable Partner

Event Overview

The Newport News/Williamsburg International Airport is hosting its first-ever PHFive K on the Runway.  This community-wide celebration is built around the running of a point-to-point 5K race on an actual airport runway and taxiway. The primary goals of the event are:

  • To promote the airport and its facilities to the local community
  • To encourage physical activity and healthy lifestyle
  • To celebrate the 70th Anniversary of commercial air service at PHF with our community

To be considered as a charitable partner, organizations must:

  • Be a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit operating for at least one year at the time of the application
  • Provide a minimum of 5 volunteers on the day of the event for a minimum of 5 hours (event date will be a Saturday in September 2019 to be determined by February 2019)
  • Provide one main point of contact that would be available from February-September 2019 to attend regular planning meetings

  • Explain how a donation will help

Benefits to the Charitable Partner

The charitable partner will benefit from the opportunity to increase organization and issue awareness, engage supporters, and raise funds. Funds are primarily raised through the direct donation option that will be given to each person that registers.  Please note that there is no guarantee of financial assistance and the amount raised is directly related to number of participants registering for the event and direct donations.


Selection Process

Applications will be reviewed by a selection committee to ensure all requirements on the application are met.  If requirements are met, the organization will be considered an eligible charitable partner.  The names of all eligible charitable partners will be submitted and one charity will be randomly selected.  Once a charitable partner is selected and the event is completed, that partner is ineligible to submit another application for 3 years.
