History

“Running the marathon is the best way I know to fight this disease.” —Fred Lebow

Fred’s Team was named in honor of running legend and co-founder of the New York City Marathon, Fred Lebow—a man who dreamed of a world without cancer.

In 1991, while being treated at Memorial Sloan Kettering (MSK) for brain cancer, Fred jogged down the hospital hallways, determined to run to raise money for a cure. He encouraged runners competing in that year’s New York City Marathon to solicit donations for each mile, and he designated MSK as the first official charity. A group of marathon runners responded by raising more than $650,000—read more about Fred Lebow’s story here.

Today, Fred's Team has grown to include thousands of runners, who participate in races worldwide and raise money in support of over 50 areas of cancer research at Memorial Sloan Kettering. Since 1995, the program has raised over $59 million .
