Jon Runyan, who has not missed a game since joining the Eagles before the 2000 season, has also not missed an opportunity to give his time to numerous causes.

The Eagles' big right tackle, who will start his 194th consecutive NFL game on Sunday against Buffalo, will be recognized for his untiring charitable efforts as the recipient of the Humanitarian Award at the Philadelphia Sports Writers Association's 104th annual Award Dinner on Monday, January 28, 2008 at the Crowne Plaze Hotel in Cherry Hill, NJ.

Among the many organizations Runyan works with are the American Cancer Society, the Cancer Institute of New Jersey, the Children's Miracle Network, the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society and St. Jude's Children Hospital.

Runyan will join a star-studded dais that already includes Jimmy Rollins, Kyle Korver, Matt Ryan, Daniel Briere, Charlie Manuel and Herb Magee, with more to come, with Harry Kalas again serving as Master of Ceremonies.

Tickets cost $75.00 and are available from Robbie Kenney at 609 - 702 - 7473, or online at
