Born to Run 5K 2018

9th Annual 5K Run/Walk Benefiting the Bruce Eckrote Memorial Fund

Race Details

TOGETHER WE RAISED OVER $115,000 IN OUR FIRST EIGHT YEARS, which benefited local families in need, supported scholarships at Wayne Valley and Wayne Hills high schools, contributed funds to cancer research at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, and oncology patient care at Hackensack University Medical Center.  We’re looking forward to raising more money at this year’s 8th annual race!
