Young Adults Cycle 70 Days Across U.S. Fighting Cancer

Baltimore, MD - Ulman Foundation’s cross-country charity bike ride, the 4K for Cancer, will send two teams of young adults on a 70-day journey cycling across the country to raise money and awareness for young adults impact by cancer.

The teams began their trip on Sunday, June 2nd, 2019 in Baltimore, MD. As they make their way across the country, the Seattle team will each cycle over 4,000+ miles to finish their journey in Seattle, WA on August 10th, 2019. The team will be biking through Moclips in August. St. John’s Chapel by the Sea hosts Team Seattle Wednesday, August 7. Meet and greet begins at 5 pm and you’re invited to meet this year’s group.

Along the way, the riders will stay with host communities that provide a floor to sleep on and, on many days, a warm dinner. Our hosts are often churches, firehouses, schools or recreation centers. On running days, participants bike between 50 and 120 miles each. On rest days they volunteer in local hospitals, hospitality houses, and other local non-profits. Each team will also give two scholarships to young adults affected by cancer.

Ulman Foundation enables these groups of college students to undertake cross-country cycling and running journeys through America with the goal of offering hope, inspiration and support to more than 200 communities along the way. There are two cycling teams and two running teams. In 2018, the 4K teams raised over $900,000, and in 2019 their is $1,000,000.
