Welcome to the first issue of our Alumni Newsletter for 2017! There is a lot of excitement here at the Ulman Cancer Fund for Young Adults as we dive into this new year and our 20th year as an organization! Doug Ulman and his family started UCF in 1997 after he was initially diagnosed as a teenager. It's amazing how far we've come.
We launched our new 4K for Cancer website in November and are excited to carve out a special section for Alumni to stay up to date - visit www.4kforcancer.org/alumni to check it out so far.
We're also still in full recruitment mode for this upcoming summer. Please seek out friends and family that may be interested in riding this summer. We've extended our offer of a free 4K Zip-Up to alumni who refer anyone who registers for this summer. Help keep the 4K tradition alive!

4K Program Updates
With the help of your feedback, we continue to make improvements to the 4K For Cancer program!
Staff -We are excited to welcome two new 4K ride coordinators! Please help us welcome 2016 Portland Alumna Greta Finney, who will coordinate the Southern Ride Routes and 2014 San Diego Alumnus Matt Dyjack who will coordinate the Northern Ride Routes.
Safety - Reflective bands will be provided for all participants and are required to be worn at all times while riding and running.
Training - Each team has their own Google spreadsheet where they can track their weekly mileage training to stay motivated as they prepare for the summer of their life!
Service -Each 4K participant is required to host a Bone Marrow Transplant Drive as part of the AYA Cancer Curriculum. Our goal is to add 4,500 people to the registry this year. Learn more about this important work at There Goes My Hero.
