5K On The Runway!
Join the Newport News/Williamsburg International Airport (PHF) as we celebrate our 2nd Annual 5K On The Runway! This race is a unique opportunity to see the airport like you’ve never seen it before; run on airport taxiways and runways for a one of a kind experience. Date and event details below.
In addition, PHF has selected the Youth Volunteer Corps of Hampton Roads as our charitable partner for our second 5K On The Runway. Youth Volunteer Corps of Hampton Roads (YVCHR) was established in 2009 as the first affiliate of Youth Volunteer Corps (YVC) in the state of Virginia. They have established partnerships with over fifty local agencies and connected over 2,300 youth to service opportunities for a combined total of over 63,000 hours of service (and counting!) to the community. Their mission is to create and increase volunteer opportunities to enrich youth, address community needs and develop a lifetime commitment to service, through projects that both directly and indirectly impact diverse populations across our community.
We are so excited to be partnering with such a worthwhile organization and community asset that furthers volunteer opportunities that enrich youth . All net race proceeds, as well as individual donations will go directly to the Youth Volunteer Corps of Hampton Roads to further their mission.
