Hi everyone! My name is Annalise Jarski, and I live in Westwood, New Jersey. In summer 2020, I will be participating in the Ulman 4K for Cancer, a 4,500 mile relay-style run across the United States for cancer awareness. I attend Binghamton University, and I am studying Neuroscience and Environmental Studies. I love running and spending time outdoors, and I am excited to use this passion for an amazing cause next summer.
The Ulman Foundation helps young adults struggling with cancer, by providing education and scholarship programs, monetary compensation for services, and support groups for cancer patients. We have all been impacted by cancer, and I’m honored to be able to help fight back in such a positive way. I recently lost both my Aunt Susan and family friend Lenny Beck to cancer, and I will be running in their honor this summer. I will also be running for my Grandma, who is currently fighting a battle with lung cancer, and for my Grandpa, who lost his battle with lung cancer almost 20 years ago.
I am so honored to be part of a team that will make such a positive impact on the cancer community. Please help me support the Ulman Foundation by making a contribution to my fundraiser and sharing this page with your family and friends. Every dollar I raise will advance the Ulman Foundation's great cause! Additionally, every day I will be devoting my run to someone who has been struggling with cancer, or who has lost their battle with cancer. Please provide me with the names of such friends or family members in the message portion of the donation page, so that I can run in their honor. Thank you for your support - together, we can make a difference!
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.
