AKTIV Against Cancer - 2017 TCS New York City Marathon

THE STORY:

On November 5, 2017, I'll run the NYC Marathon to raise money for AKTIV Against Cancer.

This organization is very near to my heart.  Earlier this year, we learned that my step-son, Cezary, has lymphomia. He has been undergoing chemo treatments this summer with good results.  The cure rate is very high, which we are grateful.  But we unfortunately lost our good friend, Travis, to cancer in July of this year.  This disease is devasting to so many familes and I want to do what I can to help make a difference.  AKTIV Against Cancer supports advanced research on exercise in both the prevention and treatment of cancer. This mission lines up with what I value in my life and I am proud to run for their research that will help others fight cancer.  Please help me in my efforts to support this great cause.  Thank you!

LEADING THE CHARGE IN EXERCISE ONCOLOGY.

AKTIV Against Cancer works to ensure physical activity will become an integral part of cancer treatment. We support cutting-edge research on the benefits of exercise for the prevention and treatment of cancer, as well as the creation of fitness programs and facilities in cancer treatment centers.

AKTIV Against Cancer was founded by 9-time NYC Marathon Champion and Norwegian running superstar Grete Waitz and current Executive Director Helle Aanesen in Norway in 2007. After donating more than $14M and helping to create fourteen (14) physical activity centers in cancer treatment facilities throughout Norway, AKTIV Against Cancer established its official presence in the United States in 2014.
