The goal of the foundation is to improve the quality of life for cancer patients.
Before her death, Grete Waitz set up a special foundation to improve the quality of life of cancer patients called the Active Against Cancer Foundation. Specifically, the foundation seeks to:
- Establish and fund training and recreational centers in cancer treatment hospitals
- Fund a PET/CT scanner for the Oslo University Hospital
- Motivate people to be physically active in order to prevent diseases
