BENEFITING: Aktiv Against Cancer
ORGANIZER: Aktiv Against Cancer
Cancer has hit close to home this year, which is why my sister and I, amateur runners, started our marathon training program back in May and hope to run the NYC Marathon on November 5th with your help.
We've chosen to run for AKTIV Against Cancer because the organization supports 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. The organization was founded by nine-time NYC Marathon Champion Grete Waitz, who has donated more than $14M and helped create 14 physical activity centers in cancer treatment facilities throughout Norway and the United States.
Please help us raise our goal of $3,500 as we run the NYC Marathon! Any amount / marathon training tip / love and encouragement / like or share helps!
