The Story

EVENT DATE: Apr 27, 2014

DEADLINE TO GIVE: Apr 27, 2014

FUNDRAISER SET UP DEADLINE: Apr 22, 2014

Now in its eleventh year, the Run As One event in New York City has become an annual "rite of spring" for thousands of runners and has grown to become a favorite cause race among runners and walkers alike. As a qualifying event for the ING NYC Marathon, the "Run As One" is much more than a cause race, attracting elite runners as well as recreational enthusiasts. Each year, our event has increased in size, with over 13,000 runners and walkers participating last year making it the world's largest 4-mile race!

 

In September of 2000, Thomas G. Labrecque, former chairman and CEO of Chase Manhattan Bank, was diagnosed with lung cancer and died eight weeks later. Tom never smoked and was in good health prior to his diagnosis. Following his death, his family and friends decided to create an annual event that would bring together many different groups of people to raise lung cancer awareness.

 

That goal has evolved into the Run As One” event. It has something for everyone. A fast and flat 4-mile run, a 1.7 mile walk and a post-race event in Rumsey Playfield that offers children’s activities (moon bounces, face painters and carnival games).

 

Also at the post-race event is a health fair that showcases the work of several lung cancer foundations, each with staff on hand to answer people's questions about lung cancer and help inform them of the different programs available to patients and families affected by this disease.
