We are pleased to announce that the Bruce Eckrote Memorial Fund will be supporting the following beneficiaries from the 2014 5k run/walk proceeds:
This year’s community beneficiary is for local resident Lily LaRue Anderson, age 6. Lily was diagnosed with Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma (DIPG) in early May and is currently undergoing treatment at Children’s Hopsital of Philadelphia. Proceeds will benefit the Anderson family and fun-loving Lily during their ongoing journey.
In addition, event proceeds will continue to support (2) Bruce Eckrote Memorial Scholarships given annually at Wayne Valley and Wayne Hills high schools, research at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, and this year we’ve added an additional benficiary– the John Thereur Cancer Center at Hackensack University Medical Center.
