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. It helps reduce unwanted side effects such as nausea, fatigue, and sleep problems while increasing endurance, strength, and energy. It can also help build a sense of empowerment and improve quality of life. Recent research indicates the benefits of physical activity extend beyond controlling symptoms and side-effects of cancer therapy; it is shown to reduce cancer progression and improve a patient’s response to anticancer therapy.

AKTIV Against Cancer has pledged $3.3 million to Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center to fund exercise oncology research via Dr. Lee Jones, PhD. The results of Dr. Jones’ latest study show that physical activity helps to reduce tumor growth in breast cancer patients and renders tumors more responsive to chemotherapy. Adidas is a global sponsor of AKTIV Against Cancer. The brand selects certain products, including shoes and apparel, to carry the foundation’s logo – helping to raise awareness of AKTIV Against Cancer and its mission. adidas generously donates a percentage of proceeds from the sale of these products back to AKTIV.
