Student Spotlight: Kyle King – 4K For Cancer

Cancer can be life-changing, career-ending, and dream-ending. However, it doesn’t have to be like that.

The Ulman Cancer Fund (UCF) envisions “a world in which all young adults affected by cancer will have access to the resources necessary to thrive.” They work specifically to help young adults overcome cancer through their Navigator program, which provides guidance to young adults on how to get the support they need.

I am seeking to help further the UCF cause by biking across the country with the 4K for Cancer Program. As a team of 35 riders, we will be riding from Baltimore, MD to Seattle, WA from June 1st to August 9th. By riding, we will be able to impact cancer patients and their families by awarding college scholarships, hosting fundraiser dinners, and conducting other service activities. This support is what helps keep the Navigator program functioning.

I need your help. After two months of fundraising, I have raised just over $3,200 of my $6,000 goal. Please support this cause by making a personal donation at: and/or supporting us at one of our events on the UMD campus this spring (see the website for more info).

Thank you in advance for your support of this important cause.
