Mark Frederick is a Graduate of Furman University. In the summer of 2017, he 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 Cancer Fund for Young Adults.

What is your connection to the cancer community?

I have seen family and friends fight cancer, and this is something everyone can relate to in one way or another. I draw so much inspiration from cancer survivors, especially my uncle who has battled and defeated cancer twice. Even with all the amazing stories of cancer being defeated, it is a continuous battle that we all feel the effects of.

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

I want the opportunity to be part of something that is much bigger than myself. Riding with the 4K is a perfect opportunity for me to bring together two things that I am passionate about; helping people and riding. I draw so much inspiration from cancer survivors, especially my uncle, and I want to give back by raising awareness through the 4K, as well as becoming part of the community of support.

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!

Kathi Pritt 09/01/2017 $74.00 Mark, we are so proud of you and all Team Seattle. Since Isaac's donations are at 100%, I wanted to donate this money to your page. The lady Carlie and I stayed with in Seattle when welcoming you all home, lost her daughter to a rare form of cancer when she was only 16 years old. Our hostess cut our AirBnB charge in half and asked that we put the balance towards the Ulman Fund for Young Adults. Your summer of labor and love will never be forgotten! God bless you and all 2017 Team Seattle. Isaac's mom
