Martha Barker Cycling for the Ulman Cancer Fund for Young Adults
SLU PT student Martha Barker (DPT Class of 2015) is cycling for the Ulman Cancer Fund for Young Adults!
Read about Martha's journey below:
With my graduation in May, I found a wonderful opportunity that combines raising funds for a wonderful cause as well as 10 days worth of service to communities throughout the United States.A bit about the program: The Ulman Cancer Fund for Young Adults is a non-profit organization that works to form a community of support for young adults battling cancer as well as navigating survivorship. The 4K for Cancer is a section of this non-profit that offers cross country cycling and running journeys to create the supportive network across the more than 200 communities we visit. Groups of college-age students ride across America with the goal of offering hope, inspiration and support to their peers who are fighting cancer. The ride is a 70 day long event including 10 days of community service. Each rider is to raise $4500 in order to participate. The funds go to the support of the young adults who are battling cancer. More directly it goes to scholarships, support groups, and fertility preservation.
