BENEFITING: THOMAS G LABRECQUE FOUNDATION
EVENT: 2014 11th Annual Run As One
EVENT DATE: Apr 27, 2014
On April 28th, I'll be running in the NYC Run as One event, which was founded in 2003 by the Thomas G. Labrecque foundation to help raise awareness for lung cancer and raise money for lung cancer research. It is a 4-mile run or 1.3 mile Health Walk that takes place in Central Park, followed by a post-race celebration at Rumsey Playfield which showcases the work of several lung cancer foundations, as well as has lots of fun activities for kids.
This year is my 4th year participating, and I'm running in honor of my dad, who passed away in February 2010. He died of lung cancer and as many never smoked cigarattes.
