  • Moment of Movement

    The COVID-19 pandemic has greatly impacted families and employers in our community. As caregivers re-enter the workforce, many are in need of immediate childcare assistance. With your support, we can provide childcare resources to families as well as help employers retain their workforce.

    Join us on Saturday, September 26th from 9:00AM to 10:00AM for a FREE virtual workout led by Chantelle Farmer and senior instructors (Jenny Henion, Jessica Kerns, and Carrie Susskind) from FLX Fitclub! Our goal is to raise $100,000 for the United Way of Tompkins County and the Ithaca Youth Bureau to help families facing current childcare challenges.

    Donate today and give our youth a flying start!

    Your gift to Moment of Movement will support:

    Friends of the Ithaca Youth Bureau- Scholarships for children of all ages to participate in a variety of recreation and leisure programs. Sport programs and clinics, theatre and art classes, yoga and Tae Kwon Do, tennis and more are among fall offerings with plans underway for an exciting winter. These programs will provide opportunities for young people to be active, have fun, explore interests, socialize with peers and make new friends.

    United Way of Tompkins County- Support program funding for supervised learning opportunities for youth, including programs supporting remote learning, “after school” activities, and recreational and enrichment programs, as well as the Child Development Council Emergency Scholarship Fund that provides support for low wage earners when they face unexpected household expenses.

  • Runway 5K

    To our wonderful running community, aviation community, and beyond:

    Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and ongoing uncertainty about the future, we’ve made the decision to cancel the 2020 Airport Community Day and Runway 5k. We love bringing the community together for this event, but unfortunately we don’t believe it will be possible this year. Thank you for your understanding and continued support – we hope to see you next year!

    UPDATE: Since we are not able to have the Runway 5K this year, which benefits the SPCA of Tompkins County, we are partnering with them on their annual calendar contest fundraiser! The contest is now live and photo submissions are being accepted, so if you think you have calendar worthy photos of your adorable pets, submit them!

    And, fasten your seat belts everyone, the 12 winning photos will be printed, framed, and displayed in the Ithaca Tompkins International Airport outside our Pet Parlor on the secure side!

    For the 2021 contest, they have reduced the donation fee for 2021 to $25 for the first entry and $15 for every photo for each additional entry.

    Donation entries and business sponsorships more than cover the cost of printing the calendar, so calendar sales are 100% profit for the shelter to use for medical care, food and housing for our animals. We will also be selling the 2021 calendar inside our terminal.
