2013 Seattle cyclists at the 4K Send Off event in Baltimore

This week our 4K For Cancer program has been receiving press from just about every corner of the states. Both cyclists and runners for the 2014 cross country trips have been praised by various local media sources – highlighting their cause and rallying support from their communities. The participants interviewed were all given an opportunity to share their connections to cancer and their reasons for joining the 4K. One of cyclists covered was our summer 2013 Team Fight intern, Erica Johnson, who has been effected by cancer in several ways but specifically mentioned a close friend, and young adult, facing cancer who Johnson will be riding for this summer. “‘Being so close in age with Beth, I have learned to accept that anything can happen to anyone, anytime, regardless of age,’ Johnson said. ‘Although these times were traumatic and emotional, part of me is thankful for the invaluable lessons I have learned.'” (The Dallas Post) This summer will be an amazing experience for these young adults as they inspire and unite communities in the fight against cancer.
