The Newark International Airport Managers Council (NIAMCO), with the coordination and support of the Port Authority of New York & New Jersey (PANYNJ), is proud to announce the Inaugural Sue Baer 5K at Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR). Sue Baer, an aviation pioneer, former General Manager, leader, friend and mentor at EWR is NIAMCO’s inspiration to hold this event. The cooperation and coordination with the PANYNJ was essential and embraced the challenge.
