Hello! My name is Emmit Varitimos, and next summer I will be cycling across country, a 4,000+ mile journey, to support people with cancer.
I recently graduated from UMass Amherst with degrees in Architecture and Building Construction Technology. While at UMass, I joined the Triathlon Club because I’m an avid cyclist and welcomed the challenge of triathlons.
I chose to ride with the Ulman Foundation, because I believe in their cause since I’ve had family members diagnosed with cancer. I want to ride for those who can not. The Ulman Foundation changes lives by providing young adults afflicted with cancer a place to live, college education, and support.
If you would like to follow my training rides and soon cross country journey follow me @ emmit4kforcancer on Facebook and Instagram
Thank You and Ride On!
Each year more than 72,000 young adults are diagnosed with cancer in the United States. Young adults (ages 15-39) face a variety of unique challenges with a cancer diagnosis including social isolation, fertility preservation, insurance concerns, delayed diagnosis, and survivorship.
The 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 services and resources for the young adult cancer community through programs that focus on patient support services, housing, survivorship, and scholarship. Learn more about young adult cancer and our impact here.
I want to give a special thank you to Amherst Farmers Market! Together we raised $241.33! I want to thank all those who donated and showed their support. Amherst has a really special place in my heart
I want to thank Miltons Farmers Market and all those who donated. Together we raised $143. A special thank you to those who shared their cancer story with me, I will be thinking of you and your loved ones cycling across America.
