BENEFITING: AKTIV Against Cancer
ORGANIZER: AKTIV Against Cancer
Cancer has insidiously hit close to home, but when life gets you down, you retaliate with action. That's why my brother and I, amateur runners, have already started our training program and will run the NYC Marathon on November 5th to make you all proud.
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!
