My name is Grayson, and I am an engineering student at The University of Michigan. I am super excited to embark on this 4000+ mile journey with 30+ other young adults who have a passion for biking and making a lasting impact on the world around them.
Cancer has had an impact on me, having lost grandparents and role models. Throughout the journey, I will keep in mind what they endured during their battle. My high school football coach, Jack Brown, constantly reminded our team,“test yourself every day, everyday you don’t test yourself is a day wasted.” And, Coach Pete Francisco always reminded us to give 101%, not just on the field, but in everything we do.
In order to complete this journey, I need to fundraise $4500, and I cannot do this without the help of you. If you are willing to donate or share my message, your help will mean so much.
Keep biking, Keep fighting!
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.
