Join us on the runway as we bring back the John Glenn International Runway 5K Run & Walk this September! Participants will receive a t-shirt, commemorative medal and swag bag. Proceeds will be donated to Honor Flight Columbus, a nonprofit organization that provides senior veterans with a day in the nation’s capital to visit the memorials built in their honor. Our previous three races have raised over $170,000 combined, and this year we’re aiming to fund a full flight for veterans once again.
