2019 Run As One 4M and Health Walk
- Both Men and Women
This 1.5-mile walk raises funding and awareness in the fight against lung cancer and honors former Chase Manhattan Bank chairman Tom Labrecque, a lifelong never-smoker who died from lung cancer at age 62. More than 60% of people diagnosed with lung cancer have either never smoked or have quit smoking. Join thousands of others this year and “run as one” to raise money to support lung cancer research and awareness.
For more information about the Thomas G. Labrecque Foundation and their commitment to preventing lung cancer through education and research, visit tglfoundation.com.
Your entry fee for the Health Walk at Run as One Presented by JPMorgan Chase covers all NYRR race and administrative expenses. To support the mission of the Thomas G. Labrecque Foundation, please consider adding an additional donation to your payment.
The post-race event is a health fair that showcases the work of several lung cancer foundations. Each foundation will have staff on hand to answer questions about lung cancer and provide information about the different programs available to patients and families affected by the disease.
The festival will also feature activities for children and a prize drawing with awesome giveaways.
