Megan is a student at East Tennessee State University . In the summer of 2011 she is riding with a group of college students on a 70 day, 4000 mile bike ride from Baltimore to San Francisco. Money raised by our riders goes to support 4K for Cancer's mission of spreading awareness, fostering hope and uniting communities across the county 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.
In the summer of 2011, I am going to help raise awareness and funding for the 4K for Cancer. This is a trip of a lifetime in which we have the opportunity to journey across the country and impact people’s lives in a priceless way. I am inspired by many family members and friends that have gone through a battle with cancer. This is an occurrence that impacts so many of our lives and one that we all have the ability to impact. With the support of my fiance’ Cody and my friends and family, I am able to take on this adventure for the greater cause.
I am looking forward to being able to finish the ride in San Francisco where my late Aunt Margie lived. She died of breast cancer in 2009. This is a trip of a lifetime in which I hope to touch people’s lives. Be the difference!
