We hope that you will support the 10th Annual Born to Run 2019, benefiting the Bruce Eckrote Memorial Fund.  The 5K Run/Walk, held in partnership with the Wayne Police Athletic League, will be held on Sunday, September 8, 2019 around Packanack Lake in Wayne, New Jersey.

 

In its first nine years, the event has raised over $130,000 with 100% of the proceeds going to the following benefactors:

 

  • Local causes including: Mason Sneed's recovery from leukemia, Steven Domalewski's ongoing recovery, Friends of Carol Mango, Hurricane Irene flood relief
  • Two scholarships given annually to graduating seniors at both Wayne Valley and Wayne Hills high schools
  • Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center to support research of early detection of gastrointestinal cancers

 

Over its first nine years, more than 3600 runners and walkers have crossed the finish line on race day, with hundreds of others involved in supporting the event. Born to Run also has broad coverage beyond Wayne township and the surrounding community, including social media and other outlets ranging from the Record to CBS New York.

 

We appreciate your support!
