The Ulman Cancer Fund for Young Adults is a leading advocate for the nearly 70,000
Americans between the age of 15 and 39 that are diagnosed with cancer each year. For more than a decade, our organization has been enhancing lives by supporting, educating, and connecting young adults, and their loved ones, affected by cancer.
A three-time cancer survivor by age 20, Doug Ulman and his family quickly learned how few support resources and services existed for young adult cancer patients and survivors. It is an age group caught in transition, lacking the outpouring of support received by children with cancer as well as the financial stability and spousal constancy that often come later in life. Frustrated by this void and motivated by the desire to help others, the Ulman family founded the Ulman Cancer Fund for Young Adults in 1997.
Then and today, the Ulman Cancer Fund envisions a world in which all young adults affected by cancer will have the support and access to resources that they need to thrive. One way we strive to achieve this goal is the 4K for Cancer.
The world’s longest-running charitable bike ride, the 2013 4K for Cancer will consist of 120 cyclists and 30 runners raising awareness and support for young adults with cancer as they journey more than 4,000 miles across the country along five different routes.
We are also excited to announce a number of opportunities for your organization or business to get involved in the 2013 4K for Cancer. Any contribution that you make will be attributed to the rider of your choice’s personal fundraising account. Please click the link below to view our complete sponsorship package for details.
Join us in making 2013 the most successful year in 4K for Cancer history!
