Welcome To ONERUN!
On behalf of everyone at ONERUN, welcome! We are a fast growing cancer nonprofit helping cancer patients receive the care and programs they need to help beat and overcome cancer. We were founded in 2010 by Londoner Theresa Carriere who was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2007 at 43 years old. She survived cancer and through her love for fitness (she teaches at GoodLife Fitness still!) and more specifically running, Theresa decided to run to raise funds for cancer research (at the time research was ONERUN’s main donation, we now donate to programs).
