Thank you to all our participants, sponsors, donors, volunteers, and supporters for a successful tenth year!



2020 would have been the 11th Annual Born to Run 5K benefitting the Bruce Eckrote Memorial Fund. As a great deal of planning and preparation goes into each year's event, we realized several months ago that this would be our first "off" year after 10 consecutive years. Although there is no actual event taking place today, the reasons that our family undertake this still remain. Our efforts each year let us continue our annual scholarships, make donations to both Memorial Sloan Kettering Hospital and Hackensack University Medical Center, and support local families in need. As September is National Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, we also call attention to the need for continued funding, as several of our past beneficiaries have been children. Sadly, our last year's beneficiary, Henry Aulenbach, passed away in November. While there is no virtual event planned, we plan to continue our scholarship for the Class of 2021 and if possible make donations to the other causes so very important to our family.

Our family wishes you all a safe, healthy and happy fall and year ahead, and we look forward to planning our 11th BTR for September, 2021.
