BENEFITING: THOMAS G LABRECQUE FOUNDATION
ORGANIZER: THOMAS G LABRECQUE FOUNDATION
I would like to thank you for taking the time to visit my fundraising page for the 2017 NYC Marathon, it is greatly appreciated by not only myself but all those involved in the Thomas G. Labrecque and LUNGevity foundations. The Thomas G. Labrecque Foundation supports the most promising and innovative lung cancer research projects by working toward developing early detection methods that will diagnose lung cancer in Stage I or Stage II when the survival rate is only 70%-80%.
I have made it a goal of mine to run the NYC Marathon in honor of my Uncle Tom who lost his life to advanced lung cancer in November 2016. The infectious qualities of my uncle and his unrelenting desire to fight and remain optimistic sparked my inspiration to participate in the NYC Marathon in his honor. He taught me that there is always a chance to keep fighting no matter what and I know this will to fight will be with me every mile of the marathon.
While you may or may not have known my Uncle Tom, there is a possibility that you know of someone who was diagnosed with cancer and know the struggle they go through. In order to secure my spot in the NYC Marathon I will need to meet a minimum fundraising requirement of $3000. I ask for your support in my fundraising efforts, as any contribution is greatly appreciated and will go on support innovate research.
Again, I thank you for supporting my personal cause, but I also thank you on behalf of the Thomas G. Labrecque and LUNGevity Foundations. Your contribution will truly change the lives of many individuals.
