This year, senior Business Communication major Tyler Didra will participate in the Ulman Foundation’s 4K for Cancer, a cross-country bicycle ride and run. She is a member of Team Baltimore, running from San Francisco to Baltimore from June to August 2019.
Tyler learned more about the Ulman Foundation from Stevenson alumna Jen Antonelli, who currently works at the Ulman Foundation, and who also completed the 4K for Cancer in 2017. The race covers over 4,500 miles, from coast to coast.
"I want to serve a purpose bigger than myself,” said Didra. “At Ulman [where she is an intern], we often talk about our ‘why,’ which means why we are personally fighting cancer. During 4K for Cancer, we will write the names of the people who inspire our ‘why’ on our arms and legs, and we will dedicate our runs to them."
Best of luck to Tyler as she prepares for graduation and the run! Those who'd like to help sponsor Tyler's run can click here.
