 Kristin Engelhard is a recent graduate of the University of Wisconsin-Madison and will be pursuing the Doctor of Physical Therapy degree at Northwestern University next fall. In the summer of 2019, she will be traveling with a group of college-aged students on a 70-day, 4000+ mile ride from Baltimore to Seattle, raising money and awareness for the Ulman Foundation.

If you would like to contact her during the summer, feel free to email her at kristinengelhard@gmail.com. She would love to hear from you!

What is your connection to the cancer community?

Many of my family members, immediate and extended, have faced cancer at some point in their life. From lymphoma to prostate cancer, it has had an impact on me and my family. Nobody should face that alone and it shouldn't be a barrier to achieve what you want in life. As a member of TriDelta, I spent a large part of my college experience fundraising for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. I have learned that together, we can advocate for healthy living and be catalysts of positive change in the cancer community.

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

I am thankful to be in good health myself and would love to do what I can to contribute to and support the cancer community by participating in this program. As a rider with 4K, I have the opportunity to raise awareness, unite communities and spread compassion over the span of many weeks of hard work. I love to move and use my body, so making this commitment to myself, my team and the cancer community is an exciting and motivating challenge that I would like to tackle and fundraise towards. This growing community of riders seem fierce and passionate, with a strong sense of responsibility towards the genuine health and happiness of others.

 

 

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 www.4kforcancer.org

CHALLENGE:

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. 

SOLUTION:

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!
