About OAC by Petra Thaller, OAC Founder and President
The OAC slogan TOGETHER OUT OF THE WOODS! is a clear commitment in the comprehensive sense of health, sustainability and responsibility for the environment. OAC connects cancer patients, their families and friends and gives them the tools for a healthy future.
What is true for cancer is also true for other noncommunicable diseases, such as obesity or cardiovascular disease. We need to start in the area of primary prevention, especially in early childhood education and in schools.

The four OAC pillars in Germany, Europe and beyond are:
  1. outdoor sports and exercise,
  2. healthy nature,
  3. healthy, balanced diet, and 
  4. mental well-being. 

OAC actively supports Europe's Beating Cancer Plan in primary, secondary and tertiary prevention and is also an official supporter of the National Decade Against Cancer in Germany since October 4. This award was made with the support of the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research.
