About This Activity

Please join us for our inaugural fundraising 9K run in honor of our former President/CEO and the 9th Chief Master Sergeant of the Air Force (CMSAF), James C. Binnicker.   Chief Binnicker worked tirelessly for the residents of the Air Force Enlisted Village during the last 15 years of his life. During his years at the AFEV, he envisioned and built the Hawthorn House, a 64-room assisted living facility with a memory care wing as well as Bob Hope Village 5, a new 96-unit independent living village.  Village 5’s ribbon cutting ceremony will be this summer and although Chief won't be physically here for that event, we know he'll be watching from above with tremendous pride.

This 9K run course will take the runners through the Air Force Enlisted Village as well as through the beautiful neighborhoods of Poquito Bayou. The race will start and finish at Bob Hope Village Commons.  In addition, we will offer a 1-mile fun run for those under the age of 12.   While waiting for the awards ceremony, we will provide drinks, snacks, music, and even a bouncy house for our younger guests.   The CMSAF Binnicker 9K is a fundraiser and all proceeds will be used to support the 527 residents of the Air Force Enlisted Village. On behalf of the residents and staff, thank you for considering to support this event.
