On Friday September 16th 2016 at 8:00 AM, Eric began his 3rd attempt to run 200 miles in Central Park to increase awareness and raise money for the Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation (MMRF). His 60-hour “Journey Towards a Cure” event drew support from thousands of donors, runners, cancer patients and their families. Eric crossed the finish line on Sunday at 8:00 PM and reached his all-time goal of running 200 miles and raising over $1 million. The money raised will support the MMRF’s groundbreaking research that is extending the lives of multiple myeloma patients - with the ultimate goal of finding a cure.
The run is over, but it's not too late to support Eric and his heroic efforts. Join in and contribute to the Journey Towards a Cure!
