We are a student-run nonprofit organization based out of the University of Illinois dedicated to fighting cancer. Every year, we organize and send a group of students across the country on bicycles to spread awareness about and raise money for cancer research and patient support services. Along the way, these students interview people who have been affected by cancer and collect these interviews- called Portraits- to be put onto a website: 

We work hard throughout the year to raise as much money as possible, but there is only so much we can do as students; we need your help! Please donate to our cause to make closer the day that cancer is finally eliminated.
