12th Annual Runway Run

By Noman Butt, Service Delivery Manager - Ad Hoc, Aviation Services Division

It gives me immense pleasure to announce that ASP was one of the proud sponsors for the 12th Annual Runway Run at Toronto Pearson International Airport. It was another exciting day for ASP employees and management. On September 21, 2019, 2200 spirited runners participated in a 2k walk or 5k run on a runway that was closed for the special occasion.

The iconic event raised $100,000 for the benefit of the community, with the help and cooperation of participants, sponsors and employee volunteers. All the funds raised went to the Propeller Project. This is one of the prestigious fundraising events undertaken by the Toronto Pearson Airport. Since its inception, the Propeller Project has raised a million dollars. All the proceeds went to support local charities and community-building initiatives.

I am extremely proud to announce that this year, ASP sponsored all our employees who participated in this event. I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate Margaret Bauman, Farhana Farrukh, Zirjana Haxhiaj, Kuldip Singh, Jasdeep Hayer, Javone Rowe and Sherrie Storimans, for their participation in this event.

On the day of the event, 12 employees and 1 supervisor were deployed around the runway. The Primary Security Line (PSL) was extended between 0430-1400 hours. ASP Managers Garinder Grewal and Noman Butt were also present to oversee the event. Once again, ASP rallied behind GTAA to make this event a big success.
