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



In 2019, we are remembering 10 years since Bruce passed -- and honoring 10 years of the Born to Run 5K.  This marks a special year for the 5K, and we are pleased to once again be benefiting causes in Bruce's memory. 


We are honored to annouce our 2019 beneficiary:  Henry Aulenbach & Family, in addition to our ongoing Bruce Eckrote Memorial Scholarships and donating funds to two cancer centers.  Please click here to learn more. 


Born to Run 5K benefits the Bruce Eckrote Memorial Fund, supporting local families in need, provides scholarships at Wayne Valley and Wayne Hills high schools, and contributes funds to cancer research at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center and oncology patient care at Hackensack University Medical Center.  


We are forever grateful for all supporters over the years -- from our dedicated runners and walkers, unwavering sponsors, generous donors, and tireless volunteers.  We can't thank you enough for keeping Bruce's legacy alive and supporting our special causes. 


We're excited for a great event on September 8, 2019!


The 10th Annual Born to Run 5K was another huge success! We’re so grateful for the incredible turnout and all our supporters both in person and remote. Your generosity and continued support are greatly appreciated. We were honored to be joined by so many of our past benefactors, along with the Aulenbach family! Together we raised a great deal for our important causes. Thank you to everyone, and stay tuned for race photos to soon be posted on our Facebook page!
