Meghan Mahoney is a junior at Colorado State University. In the summer of 2018, she will be traveling with a group of college-aged students on a 70-day, 4000+ mile ride from Baltimore, MD to San Francisco, CA, raising money and awareness for the Ulman Cancer Fund for Young Adults.

What is your connection to the cancer community?

All four of my grandparents had cancer at some point, three of the four having lost their lives to it, either directly or from complications caused by it. Two, I never had a chance to meet, and one I lost earlier this year. Cancer has personally impacted not only me, but my friends, family, coworkers and many, many other people as well. It was very hard to loose my grandmother, and that grief has been felt multiplied millions of times by people all over the world. This is why I'm riding--to show compassion, solidarity, and strength in the face of something terrible.

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

Three of my favorite things are exploring new places, meeting new people, and riding my bike; the 4k will be an unbelievable way to combine all three and support an amazing cause along the way. I believe wholeheartedly in the work the Ulman Cancer Fund does, and can't wait to be a part of this group of riders. Not only will this be a way to support the cancer community, but to challenge myself both physically and emotionally. All in all, the 4k is a way to touch lives for the better and make an unparalleled impact!

ABOUT 2018 4K for Cancer

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


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!
