Francis Sadler is a Graduate from Saint Cloud State University. In the summer of 2019, he will be traveling with a group of college-aged students on a 70-day, 4000+ mile ride from Baltimore, MD to San Francisco, raising money and awareness for the Ulman Foundation.

What is your connection to the cancer community?

My father was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia in 2012. He has since gone through three rounds of chemotherapy and radiation. He has had four bone marrow transplants. My father taught me how to cycle as a kid. He also taught me how to ski and play rugby. He is my first mentor, my first coach, and one my biggest supporters.

Why are you traveling 4,000 miles this summer with the Ulman Foundation?

I am traveling 4,000 miles for my family and for all those families affected by cancer. When my father was first diagnosed, it changed everything. My family and I continue to change and adapt to the unique challenge that each day presents with us. I am riding to show support to the cancer community and to remind us all that we are not alone. Asking for help can be one the hardest things to do, especially when it comes to family. I'm riding to empower young adults and their families to seek the help necessary to ensure each day is the best it can possibly be.

ABOUT 2019 4K for Cancer

2019 marks the 18th year of the 4K for Cancer sending young adults on journeys across the country in an effort to inspire hope and unite communities in the fight against cancer. The 4K for Cancer is a program of the Ulman Foundation (Ulman). Interested in joining the fight? Apply to be a rider or runner a at


Over 72,000 young adults are diagnosed with cancer every year. Young adults (ages 15-39) face a variety of unique challenges with a cancer diagnosis including fertility preservation, social isolation, lack of insurance, delayed diagnosis, and more. 


Ulman Foundation changes lives by creating a community of support for young adults, and their loved ones, impacted by cancer. With your support, Ulman is able to provide free support services and resources for the young adult cancer community including:

Cancer to 5K - a 12-week training program designed to introduce or reintroduce cancer survivors to physical activity.

Patient Navigation - a free program (onsite at cancer centers and remotely through our office) that ensures no young adult ever faces cancer alone. We provide one-on-one support & resources to young adults and their families to help them manage the cancer experience and long-term cancer survival.

Scholarships - a financial assistance program to help young adults continue their education after being affected by cancer through their own diagnosis or the diagnosis of a loved one.

Ulman House - This year Ulman will open a “home away from home” to provide free housing for young adult cancer patients, and their caregivers, in East Baltimore. 

Your donation will help make these programs and our mission possible!
