For the 13th year, the Combine will conclude with Rich Eisen’s annual 40-yard dash in his trademark suit and cleats. At the close of the 2017 NFL Scouting Combine, Eisen will run the 40 for the 13th time, and like last year ‘Run Rich Run’ will benefit the NFL PLAY 60 relationship with St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital®, which is leading the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases. Since 2012, NFL PLAY 60 has been the ‘Official Champion of Play’ at St. Jude, helping to give all kids the chance to play.

Fans can participate and show their support, while demonstrating their own athleticism by submitting videos of themselves running the 40-yard dash. NFL Network will donate $1 for every use of the hashtags #RunRichRun and #StJude. Along with their submissions, fans will be encouraged to donate money to help support the lifesaving mission of St. Jude and ensure families never receive a bill for treatment, travel, housing or food – because all a family should worry about is helping their child live.

To submit videos running the 40 and to support NFL PLAY’s collaboration 60 along with St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, fans can visit: NFL.com/RunRichRun. Fans can also submit ‘Run Rich Run’ videos via YouTube, Twitter, Instagram and Facebook using the following hashtags: #RunRichRun #StJude.
