Jack Prince is a sophomore at University of East Anglia in the United Kingdom. In the summer of 2019, he will be traveling with a group of college-aged students on a 49-day, 4000+ mile run from San Francisco to Boston, raising money and awareness for the Ulman Foundation.
What is your connection to the cancer community?
I'll be honest, I don't really have a connection to the cancer community. So far, I've been lucky enough to never have any close family members or friends impacted by cancer. Nevertheless, this doesn't mean that I don't feel very passionate about doing all I can to help those who have been. I understand it's sometimes devastating consequence and I feel honoured to be able to use my privilege in order to help those who need it most.
Why are you traveling 4,000 miles this summer with the Ulman Foundation?
Because raising a lot of money often requires doing something a little bit crazy, and I'm here to raise as much money as possible. Also I'm a little bit crazy. This is a great cause, and on a personal level I'm able to combine running, traveling and helping people.
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 www.4kforcancer.org!
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!
