2018 5K Beneficiaries Announced

We are honored to announce the 2018 beneficiaries for the Bruce Eckrote Memorial Fund, made possible with your support of the 9th Annual Born to Run 5K.

This year we will be supporting two amazing local families–  the Clemente Family and the Leeming Family.  We will support Wayne Police Detective Jason Clemente and his family as Jay continues to undergo treatment for Pancreatic Cancer.  We will also be supporting the Leeming Family during their time of need, after the sudden passing in July of their husband and father Scott.
In addition, we will continue to fund two Bruce Eckrote Memorial Scholarships at Wayne Valley and Wayne Hills High Schools to support graduating seniors.  We’ll also continue contributing to Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center and the John Theurer Cancer Center at Hackensack University Medical Center, both supporting oncology patient and family care.
Thank you so much for your support of this year’s 5K.  All of our sponsors, participants, and donors make it possible to continue supporting these important causes in Bruce’s memory!
