Brandon is graduating in May from Keene State College with a Bachelor's in Biology. In the summer of 2011 he is riding with a group of college students on a 70 day, 4000 mile bike ride from Baltimore to Portland. Money raised by our riders goes to support 4K for Cancer's mission of spreading awareness, fostering hope and uniting communities across the country in the fight against cancer. We do this through cancer education programs, health screenings and by visiting cancer patients at hospitals, cancer centers and hospices each day during the ride. 4K also gives financial support to local, cancer centric non-profits in the communities we bike through.
I am riding in the 4K because I believe it will have a significant impact to finding a cure for cancer. By traveling to communities across the United States, I will raise money and spread awareness for the fight against cancer. It seems every year someone I know loses a relative or friend to cancer. There has never been anything I could do besides saying “I’m sorry”. This is the first time I feel like I can do something to help. I will be riding for anyone who has lost a friend or family member to cancer.
