Cristina's Bike Ride Across the U.S. for Cancer
Organized by: Cristina Richardson
Cancer will affect everyone, at least once in their lifetime. Whether through a personal battle or a family/friend's diagnosis, cancer is unavoidable. I currently have two loved ones battling Stage 4 cancer, and I want to do everything I can to kick cancer's butt. One of the ways I am going to do this is by biking across the U.S. this summer, raising money and awareness for the Ulman Cancer Fund for Young Adults. I am doing this Crowdrise fundraiser to help raise money for the Ulman Cancer Fund, as well as to raise money to help cover the costs of this trip (bike equipment, sleeping bag, food, etc.) Every person who donates will receive a handwritten thank-you card from, as well as a small handmade present. I am also dedicating each day of my ride to someone who has been affected by cancer, so if there is someone you would like me to dedicate a day of my ride to, please let me know. All the money raised will allow me to make a difference in the lives of young adults and families affected by cancer, through the funding of support groups, patient advocates, transportation to medical appointments and much more.
