The Bruce Eckrote Memorial Fund raises money through its annual Born to Run 5K Run/Walk, and from generous donors like you. The fund was established in memory of Bruce Eckrote, a giving man from Wayne, NJ who passed in 2009 after a battle with cancer.
In 2010, the fund supported a local family in need, established two scholarships at Wayne Valley and Wayne Hills high schools, and to support gastrointestinal cancer research at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center.
This year’s funds will again support two local scholarships, cancer research, as well as community causes such as the continued medical expenses and recovery of Steven Domalewski.
