NPP P2P Power Session Spotlight: The Ulman Cancer Fund for Young Adults
There is a staggering number of young adults between the ages of 20 and 39 who are diagnosed with cancer each year. Specifically, that number is over 60,000—and that’s in the U.S. alone. Even more heart wrenching, approximately 9,000 young adults pass away each year from cancer. According to the American Cancer Society, cancer is the fourth leading cause of death—resulting in nearly 10 percent of deaths in young adults.
The most common types of cancer in young adults are lymphoma, leukemia, germ cell tumors, melanoma, sarcomas, breast cancer, cervical cancer, liver cancer, thyroid cancer and colorectal cancer, according to the National Cancer Institute.
The Ulman Cancer Fund for Young Adults is a nonprofit organization dedicated to creating a community of support for those young adults and their families who are and have been impacted by cancer. One of their programs is called 4K for Cancer, where volunteers run or cycle over 4,500 miles across the U.S. each summer.
To learn more about The Ulman Cancer Fund’s 4K for Cancer, come join us at the NonProfit PRO Peer-to-Peer Conference, where the organization’s Director of Support Through Sport Rj Canning and Director of Development Katie Norton will present a case study of its renowned campaign.
