On November 6th, 2016 I'll be running The 2016 TCS New York City Marathon in honor of MANY dear family and friends who have had cancer touch their lives and in support of AKTIV Against Cancer. I choose AKTIV because their main mission is to illustrate that the benefits of physical activity extend beyond controlling the symptoms and side-effects of cancer therapy to reduce cancer progression and improve response to anticancer therapy.
"IF PHYSICAL ACTIVITY WAS A PILL, IT WOULD BE THE MOST PRESCRIBED MEDICINE IN THE WORLD. "
The mission and work of AKTIV, to ensure that physical activity will become an integral part of cancer treatment, is one that is close to my heart and that's I have decided to take on this challenge and make this commitment to train and run.

ABOUT AKTIV: 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.
