Sunday, April 14th, Family Center Board members Shamoun Afram and Mark Boyer participated in the 41st annual JFK Runway Run to benefit The Family Center.
This race is a 5K that takes place on a main runway at JFK airport in Queens. The runway is closed to aircraft traffic during the race and planes are routed to a secondary runway. The JFK Rotary Club hosts this race, but all donations raised by Shamoun supported The Family Center work keeping families stronger, longer.
Nearly 1,000 runners participated in the JFK Runway Run this year, however TFC runners Shamoun and Mark were the only ones with a cheering squad equipped with colorfully homemade signs. See all the team spirit caught on film below.
The race is over, but you can still donate to TFC through Shamoun’s FirstGiving JFK Runway Run page.
