Through sport, we have the power to change lives.

adidas and AKTIV Against Cancer have united through sport to improve the quality of life of those fighting cancer with physical activity.

Co-founded by world champion and 9 time NYC marathon runner Grete Waitz, AKTIV Against Cancer aims to improve the quality of life of those with cancer through physical activity. Through movement we can fuel the fighters and support the survivors; helping to increase endurance, energy, strength and positivity.

To create awareness and support for the cause, the special AKTIV Against Cancer Running Collection was created. A portion of each piece sold will be donated to the AKTIV Against Cancer Foundation™ with the aim to raise 1 million Euros in 2018. In addition, adidas athletes, such as Kendra Harrison and Tori Bowie, have also stepped up to take part in the fight.

Movement is more than just motion. It’s a constant push, collectively and individually, towards something better.

Through Sport, We have the Power to Change Lives. This is at the core of who we are. And I see the partnership between adidas and AKTIV Against Cancer as the ultimate expression of that belief.
