Joanne Coza lost her battle on March 11, 2012. She dedicated her life to her family and friends. She was a beautiful, selfless person that we were all so blessed to have in our lives. Despite living a healthy lifestyle, she battled for 3 1/2 years. As a testament to her character she lived with a positive attitude and a smile on her face throughout her illness. Come join us in celebrating Joanne's memory!
The Thomas G. Labrecque Foundation is committed to preventing lung cancer through education and research. Now in its fourteenth year, the Run As One event in New York City has become an annual "rite of spring" for thousands of runners and has grown to become a favorite cause race among runners and walkers alike. As a qualifying event for the TCS New York City Marathon, the "Run As One" is much more than a cause race, attracting elite runners as well as recreational enthusiasts. Each year, our event has increased in size, with over 13,000 runners and walkers participating last year making it the world's largest 4-mile race!
