BENEFITING: THOMAS G LABRECQUE FOUNDATION
EVENT: 2014 11th Annual Run As One
EVENT DATE: Apr 27, 2014
This will be my second year participating in the LUNGevity Foundation's RUN AS ONE. This was the first 5k I ever took part in and as soon as it was over, I couldn't help but look forward to doing it all over again.
My dad, Tom, was diagnosed with lung cancer in December 2012. Dealing with this is hard, and I'm not even the one who's sick. He puts up a fight and keeps his brave-dad-face on to make sure we all know he's gonna beat this. Our family has been so fortunate that in the last year and a half, the cancer hasn't spread a lick but every day is a fight.
I'm running for my dad and anyone who knows how hard this disease is to deal with. Every day is a battle.
Join me in my attempt to raise some money so that we can find a cure for this ridiculous disease.
