AKTIV Against Cancer is a newly established foundation in the US - determined to include physical activity as a part of cancer treatment.
AKTIV has guaranteed entries in the 1st-Half Marathon and the Marathon for a fundraising committment of $750. Please contact Richard Hulnick for more information on joining the team at firstname.lastname@example.org
The foundation is originally Norwegian, co-founded by the late Grete Waitz, who won the New York City Marathon a record-breaking nine times. Our foundation is now a 501c3 registrated non-profit organization and about to enter a collaboration with the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center. We will collaborate on research on physical activity and cancer and work to include physical activity as a part of cancer treatment in the US. We have good results from our foundation in Norway, where we have established fitness centers for cancer patients in Norwegian hospitals.
