THE STORY:

2016 Campaign: https://www.crowdrise.com/aktivnyc2016/fundraiser/gastonolsen 


Dear Friends, Family & Colleagues 


As many of you already know, this time last year my beautiful, wonderful mom, Helen Olsen had been diagnosed with terminal brain cancer. There was no surgery, no chemo nor radiation treatment that would change the outcome. We had the fastest, most beautiful 3 months along with family & friends filling every moment of everyday with laughter, tears & a whole lotta love as mom fought like a champ living to her own personal mantra of "live life to the fullest."


On November 6th, 2016 I'll be running The 2016 TCS New York City Marathon, not only in memory of mom, the woman who is my heart & soul, but also in support of AKTIV Against Cancer.  The mission and work of AKTIV is to ensure that physical activity will become an integral part of cancer treatment. After my work at Cabrini Hospital with both cancer & HIV patients, it has become very close to my heart and that's why I have decided to take on this challenge and make this commitment to run rabbit run.


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 twelve (12) physical activity centers in cancer treatment facilities throughout Norway, AKTIV Against Cancer has established its official presence in the United States, supporting 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.


I am writing to you to ask for your support.  Please take just a few minutes to go to my fundraising page (insert link here), click on the DONATE button and give whatever you can.  All of the money will go directly to the AKTIV Against Cancer to further their work.  Anything you can give to help me reach my goal of raising at least $3,000 for AKTIV is deeply appreciated!  Please also spread the word to others that you think might be interested in supporting.


Much thanks, cheers & a whole lotta love!
