AKTIV Against Cancer

Grete's legacy foundation, AKTIV Against Cancer, was founded by the Norwegian national icon and nine-time New York City Marathon champion, and Helle Aanesen, in Norway in 2007. AKTIV Against Cancer works to ensure physical activity will become an integral part of cancer treatment. Physical activity can be positive for the vast majority of cancer patients, both during and after treatment. AKTIV Against Cancer has pledged $3.3 million to Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center to fund exercise oncology research via Dr. Lee Jones, PhD. As part of this support, the exercise oncology facility on the Upper East side is now named the AKTIV Against Cancer Exercise Oncology Research Center.

We invite you to celebrate Grete's legacy, as well as support AKTIV Against Cancer's mission by donating here. Follow AKTIV Against Cancer on social media as well by liking them on Facebook, and follow them on Twitter and Instagram.
