A new event inspired by one man's journey to run 200 miles around Central Park in support of the Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation, to honor the passing of his dear friend, and to raise $1 million dollars.
Now the founder Eric Gelber passes the torch on to others to get involved at this amazing Run, Relay, Raise Awareness & Funds for Critical Research. We're currently looking for local acts to play alongside the race and amp up the crowd and the runners. 


The Opportunity

Eric Gelber has teamed up with legendary NYC booking agent Doug DeFalco to make the 2019 Journey Towards a Cure Randalls Island Relay a success.  DeFalco has been a booker/promoter at venues all over Brooklyn as well as Manhattan. DEFALCO PRESENTS continues to book shows for The Brooklyn Night Bazaar, The Riis Park Beach Bazaar, and the MoBeat Series at Brooklyn Bowl. This is a great opportunity for local and regional acts to play a show with a great cause and get your music heard by thousands of new fans.
