5K run, family walk to be Sept. 29 at BWI cargo complex

The 16th Annual BWI and Northrop Grumman Airport Run and Family Walk will be held at 8 a.m. Sept. 29 at BWI's Midfield Cargo Complex. The complex is off Aviation Boulevard. Admission and parking are free.

Entertainment, refreshments and prizes will be offered before and after the 3K walk and 5K run. All proceeds will benefit local Down syndrome parent groups and the Kennedy Krieger Institute's Down Syndrome Clinic. Runners and walkers of all ages will follow a course at BWI Airport and Northrop Grumman with views of planes taking off and landing.

FOR THE RECORD - A brief in yesterday's BWI Digest gave the wrong phone number for information on the 16th Annual BWI and Northrop Grumman Airport Run and Family Walk. The correct phone number is 410-993-RUNN. The Sun regrets the error.

Information: 410-933-RUNN.

100th anniversary of flight is celebrated

BWI is highlighting its Observation Gallery and visual timeline along the International Pier's interior wall as part of America's Aviation Adventure, a program to celebrate the 100th anniversary of flight. The state is contributing up to $20,000 to the project, showing its partnership with the Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission to preserve Maryland's aviation gateways.

The "aviation trail," which begins in Maryland, can take visitors to North Carolina, with 15 aviation museums and sites to visit along the way.

Information: 888-824-7463.
