Event Details
Cycle, Unite, Inspire - Spin for Cancer

Join me, Chen and the The Handle Bar Harvard Sq staff on January 20th at 1pm for an amazing spin class followed by some well-deserved refreshments and raffle offerings! Bikes are each $25 ($1 cheaper than a single class pass!) and all proceeds go to the 4k For Cancer fund benefitting the Ulman Foundation. Marissa, Chen, and other 4k participants will be biking 4,000+ miles through the country this summer to raise funds that will support young adults in their fight against cancer. We will be traveling with the intent to spread awareness, give scholarships, and build a stronger relationship with young adults in the cancer community. What better way to celebrate this awesome cause than by riding together?! 

Venmo at @Marissa-Aldieri! Please read Facebook event page for additional options!

Story

ABOUT 2019 4K FOR CANCER

2019 marks the 18th year of the 4K for Cancer sending young adults on journeys across the country in an effort to inspire hope and unite communities in the fight against cancer. The 4K for Cancer is a program of the Ulman Foundation (Ulman). Interested in joining the fight? Apply to be a rider or runner a at www.4kforcancer.org

CHALLENGE:

Over 72,000 young adults are diagnosed with cancer every year. Young adults (ages 15-39) face a variety of unique challenges with a cancer diagnosis including fertility preservation, social isolation, lack of insurance, delayed diagnosis, and more. 

SOLUTION:

Ulman Foundation changes lives by creating a community of support for young adults, and their loved ones, impacted by cancer. With your support, Ulman is able to provide free support services and resources for the young adult cancer community including:

Cancer to 5K - a 12-week training program designed to introduce or reintroduce cancer survivors to physical activity.

Patient Navigation - a free program (onsite at cancer centers and remotely through our office) that ensures no young adult ever faces cancer alone. We provide one-on-one support & 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.

Ulman House - This year Ulman will open a “home away from home” to provide free housing for young adult cancer patients, and their caregivers, in East Baltimore. 

Your donation will help make these programs and our mission possible!
