We had an incredible time at our annual fundraiser JFK Runway Run on April 14th!

A hearty THANK YOU to our sponsors, volunteers, timekeeper, participants, and spectators (in no particular order) for making this event another success. This has been going on, continuously, since 1972 and would never have been possible every single year without these wonderful folks’ help and involvement. Thank you!

Photos and a video of the race can be found on our race’s photo gallery page. Here are some of them:

December 2018 News

Kids who attended our annual Kids Christmas Party (December 4th, 2018) were thrilled to pieces when they saw Santa and Mrs. Claus emerge out of a jetBlue airplane in the hangar! Some Disney princesses – such as Elsa from “Frozen” – were in attendance too. Face-painting was offered. They all posed for photos and gave out gifts. It was obvious the children had the time of their lives which was the greatest gift us adults could ever get. HUGE Thanks to the sponsors that made this happen! Visit our photo gallery for photos taken at this event.
