This spring Victoria will be graduating from University of Colorado's College of Nursing and two weeks following will procede to cycle cross-country. This 70 day 'break' from school and work is called '4K' for it will be over 4,000 miles from Baltimore to Seattle! The 4K ride is organized through the Ulman Foundation based in Baltimore. This foundation supports young adults with cancer (16-39) through various programming from housing, care kits, scholarships, and building communities in this community. Victoria found out about this foundation through a program ran here in Denver. Last fall she was a volunteer coach with their 'Cancer to 5K' program which met at Wash Park. 'From joining this group I saw community build, support offered, friends made, and the amazing impact this foundation helped create. When the opportunity appeared to apply for the rid4K ride I could not pass on it!' Cancer has impacted Victoria personally through family members who have gone through treatment, specifically her father. 'Ask anyone and there will, unfortunately, be a connection in some way to cancer. I have seen the health care side and the family side. Both are tough. I want to make an impact and ride for those people.' The ride will average between 70-80 miles a day with a handful of days off. Along the way scholarships will be given, cancer kits, and bringing awareness throughout the ride. 'I have completed a handful of week long bike rides, so I am a mix of excited and nervous at the scope of this ride!; however, this ride is not comparable to the fight against cancer.'
'If you'd like to join my journey, i will bike in memory or for a fight of a loved one for you'
