Pilot for Make a PACT for Life

 

Be a Pioneer
Join our Pilot Program for PACT
Participate in Physical Activity during Cancer Treatment & beyond

Studies have shown that exercise increases quality of life for cancer survivors and may lengthen their lives by preventing recurrence. We know the benefits, but are survivors participating?

Many people with cancer:
don't know what exercises to do
how much to do
and who to work with


PACT changes that.
 
PACT is uniquely designed for both newly diagnosed and long term cancer survivors. It is a series of physical activity programs that rebalance, rebuild and revive.
 
 
We're ready to Pilot PACT for the American College of Sports Medicine's Initiative Exercise is Medicine so that PACT can become a nationally accredited physical activity intervention for anyone who has been diagnosed with cancer.
 
But we need your help to do it, here's how.
