Casey Costello's Fundraising Page

Casey Costello is a senior at Loyola University Maryland. In the summer of 2017 she will be traveling with a group of college-aged students on a 49 day, 4000+ mile run from San Francisco, CA to Baltimore, MD to raise funds and awareness for the Ulman Cancer Fund for Young Adults. 

What is your connection to the cancer community?

I have friends and family members that have battled cancer. During my sophomore, junior, and senior year at Loyola, I have been a part of the Relay for Life Committee on campus. Through this experience, I have seen how cancer has affected so many different people. Although cancer is a tremendous tragedy, being a part of a community that seeks to fight and defeat cancer is incredibly rewarding. 

 Why are you traveling over 4000 miles this summer with the Ulman Cancer Fund for Young Adults?

I am graduating college in the spring and therefore will not be a part of my normal Relay for Life Committee. Running the 4K will be a way to continue my involvement with the cancer community. Running across the country will be worth the physical and mental challenges to spread awareness and money for the Ulman Cancer Fund.

ABOUT 2017 4K for Cancer

2017 marks the 16th 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 at


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!
