Path to the Draft returns in full on Monday, March 18 with one-hour episodes airing Monday-Friday at 6:00 PM ET.

For the 15th year, the Combine will conclude with Rich Eisen's annual 40-yard dash in his trademark suit and cleats. At the close of the 2019 NFL Scouting Combine Presented by Verizon, Eisen will run the 40, 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.

NFL Network will donate $50,000 to the cause. Fans can show their support while demonstrating their own athleticism by submitting videos of themselves running the 40-yard dash. Along with their submissions, fans are encouraged to donate money to help support the lifesaving mission and ensure families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food – because all a family should worry about is helping their child live.

Courtyard by Marriott has also generously pledged donations to help support play therapy at St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. As the Official Champion of Play at St. Jude, NFL PLAY 60 has pledged to support the needs of its Child Life program, which helps children cope with the stress of their illness through therapeutic play and other activities, promoting development, self-expression and peer interaction among other benefits. Child Life is an integral part of the medical team at St. Jude and is visible in every clinical arena from patient care to program development.

To submit videos running the 40 and to support NFL PLAY 60's collaboration 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 and Instagram using the following hashtags: #RunRichRun #StJude.

This year's campaign is already off to a blazing start following Eisen's kick off race with eight-time Olympic Gold Medalist and World Record holder Usain Bolt during Super Bowl week in Atlanta. Despite coming up a bit short against the 11-time World Champion, the competition sparked a 5.89 finish from Eisen – a career best – setting up for an exciting run in Indianapolis.
