Special Olympics Missouri Announces Inaugural STL Day on the Runway
ST. LOUIS, MO, (SLFP.com), January 14, 2018 - For the first time ever, the public is invited to spend the day on the airfield at St. Louis Lambert International Airport (STL) in support of individuals with intellectual disabilities served by Special Olympics Missouri. Area law enforcement agencies are partnering with STL, Special Olympics and FedEx to bring this new family-friendly event to the St. Louis community.
STL Day on the Runway is Sunday, April 15 between 7:30 a.m. and 2 p.m. This inaugural family friendly event will include a 5K Race and Family Fun Walk, a Plane Pull® and a family festival with a variety of attractions and events.
"Through our partnership with Law Enforcement Torch Run®, Special Olympics Missouri has the honor of providing unique events in our local communities," said President and CEO Mark Musso. "We are excited to work with St. Louis Lambert International Airport, FedEx and our law enforcement partners to bring the St. Louis community together in an effort to raise awareness and break down social barriers and stigma that often surrounds individuals with intellectual disabilities."
"Many airports across the country have had the opportunity to host plane pulls and other events like these," said Airport Director Rhonda Hamm-Niebruegge. "This will be a first for STL and we're honored to partner with Special Olympics Missouri and FedEx for this inaugural event."
STL Day on the Runway is a fundraiser designed to provide participants with a unique experience while raising awareness and money to support individuals with intellectual disabilities served by Special Olympics Missouri.
Area runners can sign up now to be the first to run on an STL runway. The race course is set for portions of Runway 11-29 and its taxiways making it a clean, fast track that will allow runners great chances to improve their pace and for families looking to participate in a family walk designed for all ages! Prizes will be awarded in several categories.
STL Day on the Runway will feature a team competition Plane Pull. Teams of between 15 and 25 people can test their strength by pulling a FedEx cargo aircraft, estimated to weigh 190,000 lbs. This is a great team building opportunity! Prizes will be awarded in several categories.
STL Day on the Runway offers a fun family festival with activities for children and kids of all ages, including a mini pulling event, displays that give you a sneak-peak behind the scenes of the Airport and highlight some of the tools of our community's first responders. Entertainment, opportunities to participate in activities with Special Olympics Missouri athletes, food trucks/food vendors, and more compliment this family friendly event.
All proceeds from STL Day on the Runway ensure that more than 6,000 Special Olympics Missouri athletes in the St. Louis community have the opportunity to participate in local and regional activities for little or no cost to them.
