BENEFITING: AKTIV Against Cancer
ORGANIZER: AKTIV Against Cancer
Friends, Family, Colleagues -
On November 6th, 2016 I'll be running The 2016 TCS New York City Marathon in memory to my lovely wife Daniela and in support of AKTIV Against Cancer.. After 16 months of battle against stomach cancer, she passed away and left so many friends, colleagues and her loving family.
She will stay in our hearts and will live on in everyone of us.
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.
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.
I am writing to you to ask for your support. Please take just a few minutes to go to my fundraising page (https://www.crowdrise.com/fundraiser/edit/aktivnyc2016/svenstange), click on the DONATE button and give whatever you can. All of the money will go directly to the AKTIV Against Cancer to further their work. Anything you can give to help me reach my goal of raising at least $3,000 for AKTIV is deeply appreciated! Please also spread the word to others that you think might be interested in supporting.
Please feel free to reach back out to me with any questions at all! For more information on AKTIV Against Cancer go to http://www.aktivagainstcancer.org/
