AKTIV AGAINST CANCER WORKS TO ENSURE THAT PHYSICAL ACTIVITY

WILL BECOME AN INTEGRAL PART OF CANCER TREATMENT.

We support 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.  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 ten physical activity centers in cancer treatment facilities throughout Norway, AKTIV Against Cancer established its official presence in the United States.
