Aruba Airport Authority N.V.’s (AAA) Wings of Hope (WoH) team is organizing the 2nd AUA Airport Runway Run 2024 on Sunday March 17, 2024, where a total of 125 runners will have the opportunity to experience a unique event and give back to the community.

AAA’s WoH focuses on executing socially responsible projects with United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) as its guiding principle to contribute to the well-being, further development, and sustainability of the Aruban community. As part of WoH’s 2024 plan, like last year, the 2nd AUA Airport Runway Run 2024 will focus on raising funds for 2 foundations including Trampolin Pa Trabao and Funari, which foundations were chosen by AAA employees who voted for these foundations through a company poll.

Trampolin Pa Trabao’s essential goal is to find employment for people with limitations from the age of 17 and up. Within a structured job training and guidance program, the goal is to match their clients with local employers that best complement their potential.

Funari focuses on the social integration of physically disabled individuals into society. Their main goal is to take their clients out of their isolation and provide them with a sense of “normalcy” to keep their minds and bodies active.

The 2nd AUA Airport Runway Run 2024 will have a total of 125 runner spots available that will be running a little over 5K starting from Runway 11 to Runway 29 and back towards Runway 11. The AUA Airport Runway Run will start at 6:00AM and finish at 7:00AM. The tickets will be going live on Saturday March 9, 2024, at 12PM exclusively on for AWG 25, -, and will be based on first come first serve. To be able to participate in the AUA Airport Runway Run, participants must be a runner (walking during the Runway Run will not be possible due to airport restrictions), must be 18+ years old, and must bring a valid ID upon registration to enter Airport premises for the Runway Run. All runners will receive branded gadgets such as Safety Vests and hydration belt waist bags which will be used by the runners during the actual runway run.

  1. Wings of Hope looks forward to welcoming this year’s 125 lucky runners for the 2nd AUA Airport Runway Run 2024, and together raise funds for a good cause.
