8th Annual 5K Run/Walk Benefiting the Bruce Eckrote Memorial Fund
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.
The fund has raised over $85,000 in 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, and 2016, and supported a number of causes including local families in need, established two scholarships at Wayne Valley and Wayne Hills high schools, supported gastrointestinal cancer research at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, and supported patient care at Hackensack University Medical Center.
This year’s funds will again support again support two local scholarships, cancer research, as well as community causes for a family in need.
