The Thomas G. Labrecque Foundation is committed to preventing lung cancer through education and research. We pledge:
- To spread awareness that anyone, at any age, can suffer from lung cancer.
- To support lung cancer research by funding the development of new treatments and better screening tools.
- To justly focus media and grassroots attention on lung cancer, since it is the #1 cancer killer in the US.
- To continue the fight!
Team Run As One (formerly Team Labrecque) was honored to be chosen by New York Road Runner (NYRR) as a charity partner at the inception of the charity program for the NYC Marathon nine years ago. Since running our first marathon as a team in 2006, The Foundation and LUNGevity has had more than 300 people join and raise funds for our cause. This is our fifth year participating in the NYC Half .
