Hundreds of people were at the Greenville Downtown Airport Saturday morning for a 5k run and walk.
The money raised is going to help the airport expand.
Each runner at today’s Take Flight 5k helped the airport take another step in improving it’s property.
Airport officials say they will use the money to build a parking lot near Runway Park.
“Due to our success we’ve gotten a large number of vehicles that have to look for a parking place and park on the side of the road and we are trying to raise the money necessary to give them an adequate place to park,” Joe Frasher said.
Mr. Frasher, Greenville Downtown Airport Director, says he hopes the parking lot will be completed by the end of the year.
