Rebecca Armstrong is a Sophomore at Bowling Green State University. 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, MD to San Francisco raising money and awareness for the Ulman Foundation.

What is your connection to the cancer community?

I have watched as close family, friends, and community members have been impacted by cancer and I have searched for a way to help out. Throughout the years I found ways to help by doing small fundraisers and attending events for cancer awareness. I am excited that the 4k for Cancer has given me the opportunity to help in a much bigger way.

Why are you traveling over 4000 miles this summer with the Ulman Foundation?

I am traveling 4,000 miles this summer because I want to do something bigger than myself. The 4k for cancer gives me the opportunity to be apart of a program that creates support and hope for young adults affected by cancer. I am eager to raise money for something that impacts so many people and give back in a way that I can. As a future early childhood educator, I want to bike 4,000 miles to show my students when we set a goal and put our minds to it, we will succeed. On the trip I want to be touched by the stories people will tell me and help touch other's lives. The 4k for cancer is much bigger than myself which is why I want to set this goal and succeed!

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!
