 In the summer of 2019, Matthew Lavallee 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?

Many members of my extended family have battled cancer. I was always encouraged to participate in cancer fighting events and fundraisers since I was a kid. Cancer has always been a part of my life, raising 4,500$ to support young adults fighting cancer is the least I could do.

Why are you traveling 4,000 miles this summer with the Ulman Cancer Fund for Young Adults?

I am traveling 4,000 miles to raise money for the cancer community and to spread hope among people battling cancer. I will be gathering donations while riding all over the country. I will also be visiting cancer patients and survivors on my off days, my goal is to spread joy, laughter, and of course hope.

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!
