Avery Schuyler Nunn is a junior at Lafayette College. In the summer of 2018, she will be traveling on a 49-day, 4000+ mile run from San Francisco to Boston, raising money and awareness for the Ulman Cancer Fund for Young Adults.
Why are you running over 4000 miles this summer with the Ulman Cancer Fund for Young Adults?
If there is one thing I love more than running, it is my family and friends. I am running from coast to coast because I want to show people that I care. I have lost loved ones to cancer, and seen people I love lose someone. I want anyone and everyone out there, whether I know them personally or not, to know that there is someone that cares for what they are going through. A quote that I love is, "You have been assigned this mountain to show others that it can be moved." I am hoping that by meeting my fundraising goal and by completing this run, it will inspire others to push themselves more than they ever could have thought possible before. I want those who are affected by cancer to believe that they can conquer the challenges that are placed infront of them, no matter how high the mountain.
2018 marks the 17th 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 Cancer Fund for Young Adults (UCF). Interested in joining the fight? Apply to be a rider or runner a at www.4kforcancer.org!
Over 70,000 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.
The Ulman Cancer Fund for Young Adults changes lives by creating a community of support for young adults, and their loved ones, impacted by cancer. With your support, the Ulman Cancer Fund 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.
UCF House - This year UCF broke ground on 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!
