ORGANIZER: The Ulman Cancer Fund for Young Adults, Inc.
It's a word that has affected nearly all of us, in one way or another. It's a terrifying diagnosis and one that demands a warrior's spirit and an army of support. That's where UCF comes in.
We provide free, innovative, and impactful programs to support young adults, and their loved ones, impacted by cancer. It's our vision that with our help, no young adult will face cancer alone.
I am so excited to be running my first marathon wearing Team Fight Blue & Yellow, fighting for the over 70,000 young adults who are diagnosed with cancer each year.
I'm hoping to raise $3,000 dollars - the most I've ever fundraised! I hope that you will support me as I take on my biggest challenge yet! In the process, you'll be honoring your own loved ones and and helping change the lives of young adults, and their loved ones, impacted by cancer.
For every $25 donation, I'll dedicate a training run to your loved one and write their name on my legs during the run.
For every $50 donation, I'll write the name of your loved ones on my legs during the race.
For every $100 donation, I'll dedicate a training run AND write your loved one's name on my legs during the race.

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!
