Communication News

Tyler Didra and 4K for Cancer runnersAs she begins her 4,000-mile journey to the East coast, Business Communication alum Tyler Didra is keeping us posted about her progress. She wrote, "Today, we crossed the Golden Gate Bridge (plus an additional 97 miles). Baltimore, I’m still over 4,200 miles away, but I am on my way home."

As a program of the Ulman Foundation, a non-profit organization that changes lives by creating a community of support for young adults and their loved ones impacted by cancer, the 4K for Cancer initiative includes teams of runners (and cyclists) who will make their way across America this summer, raising money for cancer research and support. Best of luck to you, Tyler! She's in the back row, second from the left. Those who want to help out with a donation in Tyler's name can click here. (Photo from Facebook)
