This is a great honor and has so much more meaning now that I am a cancer fighter.
AKTIV Against Cancer supports cutting edge research on the benefits of exercise therapy 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 the late 9-time NYC Marathon Champion and Norwegian running superstar Grete Waitz and co-founder Helle Aanesen in Norway in 2007, and we are honored and excited to be working with Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in the United States on this important work.
We are very excited to announce that this year we will be honoring Dr. Jordan Metzl as well as Kikkan Randall at the 4th Annual AKTIV Against Cancer Award luncheon. The luncheon will again be at the New York Athletic Club on Wednesday, October 31st from 12pm – 1:30pm during the TCS New York City Marathon Week.
