As Team Papa prepares to take on Central Park for the sixth year in a row, we wanted to take this opportunity to remember Enrique "Papa" Manansala-- a beloved husband, father, grandfather, uncle, brother, friend and most notably the most generous and selfless man we were all blessed to know.
Papa passed in April of 2012 but his memory will live through us forever.
On 20 April 2019, let's RUN AS ONE to support lung cancer research and awareness, through the Thomas G. Labrecque Foundation, in remembrance and honor of Enrique "Papa" Manansala. We have raised over $8,500 over the last 5 years--join the team (donate/walk/run) and let's make it another great year!
The Thomas G. Labrecque Foundation is committed to preventing lung cancer through education and research. Now in its sixteenth 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 TCS New York City 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 11,000 runners and walkers participating last year making it the world's largest 4-mile race!
The race will be held on Saturday, April 20, 2019 at 8:30am, hope to see you there!
