BENEFITING: THOMAS G LABRECQUE FOUNDATION
ORGANIZER: THOMAS G LABRECQUE FOUNDATION
I will be running the 2017 New York City Marathon in loving memory of my Grandfather, Poppy, who passed away on January 15, 2011 from lung cancer. He was my best friend and biggest fan—finding humor in every situation and standing on the sideline of every horseshow, soccer and lacrosse game. I know that he will be right there with me for each mile on November 5th.
The Thomas G. Labrecque Foundation funds the most promising and innovative lung cancer research projects, working toward early detection methods that will diagnose lung cancer in Stage I or Stage II, when the five-year survival rate is 70% to 80%.
Every donation is greatly appreciated and brings us one step closer to preventing this disease.
