BTyler Didra's dedicationsusiness Communication 2019 alum Tyler Didra, who is participating with the Baltimore team in the Ulman Foundation's 4K for Cancer run across the United States this summer, has dedicated part of her run to two members of the Business Communication family. On her left leg she wears the name of Chris Noya, much beloved faculty member of the department and the university who passed away from cancer on March 7, 2019. On her right leg, she wears the name of Bryan Read, the son of Business Communication faculty member Chip Rouse. Bryan continues to fight colon cancer.

Tyler wrote, "Today is dedicated to our Stevenson University and Business Communication friends -- Cancer may try to bring us down, but it can never kill our hope or conquer our spirit."

Tyler's run continues as the team approaches Las Vegas June 23, having begun in San Francisco a week earlier. To donate to Tyler's run, you can click here. Stay tuned for more 4K for Cancer updates.

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)
