BENEFITING: THOMAS G LABRECQUE FOUNDATION
ORGANIZER: THOMAS G LABRECQUE FOUNDATION
By the time I run the 2017 NYC marathon, it will have been almost 7 years exactly since I lost my father to lung cancer. My story is not unique; over 8 million people die from complications attributed to lung cancer every year. This doesn’t make the loss any easier. In fact, it hurts my heart to think of every family that has gone through what my family experienced almost a decade ago.
In memory of my hero, coach and number one fan- I have decided raise money for the Thomas G. Labrecque Foundation in my NYC marathon journey this year. It is a great organization in and of itself, but it has partnered with LUNGevity to raise money and awareness for the number one cause of cancer related deaths in the US.
I have included links for both of the organizations below:

LUNGevity Foundation: https://www.lungevity.org/
Together we can fight this terrible disease! Any and all donations are welcomed and greatly appreciated!
