ORGANIZER: The Ulman Cancer Fund for Young Adults, Inc.
I completed the 4K for Cancer Baltimore to Seattle ride with Ulman in 2015. I found so much love, generosity, and selflessness all throughout the country and had the priviledge of seeing first hand all the goodness that UCF breeds. When I finished the 4K I wanted to find other ways to ve a part of the UCF fam, but moving to San Diego made it difficult to be a part of local UCF events.
I am THRILLED that I can be involved again through Team Fight with the NYC Marathon (even though I may be DREADING the training). I'll be running for all the people I met across the country who were affected by cancer, who supported my team, and for my friends and family who have gotten to know this disease all too well. Please consider donating (aka help me I'm poor)! Also I'd be honored to dedicate miles to a loved one of yours too, just let me know!

The Ulman Cancer Fund for Young Adults changes lives by creating a community of support for young adults, and their loved ones, impacted by cancer. With your support, the Ulman Cancer Fund is able to provide multiple support services and resources for the young adult cancer community, including:
Cancer to 5K - a free, progressive, 12-week run/walk program designed to reintroduce cancer survivors to physical activity. The Team Fight New York City Marathon Team directly funds this life-changing program for survivors living in New York City and across the United States!
Patient Navigation - a free program (onsite at five major cancer centers and remotely via email and phone) that ensures no young adult faces cancer alone. We provide one-on-one support and resources to young adults and their families to help them manage the cancer experience and long-term cancer survival.
Scholarships - a financial assistance program to help young adults continue their education after being affected by cancer through their own diagnosis or the diagnosis of a loved one.
Thank you for all your time and effort to help make these programs and our mission possible!
Cancer changes lives…so do WE!
