Aktiv (Cancer & Marathon) Fundraiser by Nancy Letts

In April 2025, I’m aiming to run the prestigious Boston Marathon. This isn’t just any marathon for me—it’s the final stop on my quest to earn the coveted six-star medal from the Abbott World Marathon Majors. Yep, I’ve been running my sneakers off in Berlin, London, Chicago, New York City, and Tokyo, and now Boston is calling my name! As a bonus—although not verified yet, I may be the first-ever Deaf female to receive the medal—how amazing is that?!

But this isn’t just about my personal goal (though I’ll admit, that medal would look pretty sweet on my wall). I’m running to support AKTIV Against Cancer, a cause that resonates deeply with me. AKTIV Against Cancer funds research and programs that leverage physical activity to prevent and manage cancer, supporting patients and survivors in leading healthier lives.

Here’s where you come in: I need your help to hit my fundraising goal. Your donation (whether monetary donations, goods or services) will make a massive difference. Not only will you be helping me get to that Boston starting line, but your generosity will support vital research and initiatives that empower individuals to fight against this disease.

For more information about this awesome charity, please visit the AKTIV Against Cancer main site, which includes details on how your donation can make a difference. And, if you’re into it, I’d love to give you a shoutout! We can feature your logo on my race gear, give you props on social media, or come up with another fun way to recognize your generosity.
