The WorkOut Cancer research fund supports pilot and pre-clinical studies investigating the effects of exercise on tumor physiology and on cancer treatments.
The Exercise - Cancer Link
Exercise can reduce the risk of developing some cancers. Recent
studies have found evidence that exercising after a cancer diagnosis
decreases the risk of breast and colon cancer recurring, and decreases death from those cancers and from prostate cancer. However, why this happens is not known. WorkOut Cancer wants to help researchers find out why.
How can you help?
No amount is too small, and your tax deductible contribution goes to research.

WorkOut Cancer's mission is to provide financial support to researchers investigating how cancer patients might be able to use exercise to:
- Decrease treatment side effects
- Maximize responses to treatments & improve patient survival
- Reduce metastases & cancer recurrence
Exercise is free, it can be done virtually anywhere, and is something over which cancer patients have control at a time when control may seem to be slipping away.
Scholarships and Fellowships
Help WorkOut Cancer fund PhD scholarships and post-doctoral fellowships in exercise oncology. More investigative researchers are needed in this field which will benefit cancer survivors for decades to come.
When donating, also select scholarship. Thank you!
