The Ulman Cancer Fund for Young Adults has been changing lives by creating a community of support for young adults, and their loved ones, as they fight cancer and embrace survivorship since 1996. Founded by the Ulman family after their son, Doug Ulman, was diagnosed with cancer during his sophomore year at Brown University the Ulman Cancer Fund for Young Adults has worked tirelessly to give young people facing cancer the support and care that they deserve.
Through its various programs, the Ulman Cancer Fund for Young Adults creates communities of support across the country. The 4K for Cancer program, which offers cross-country cycling and running journeys to young adults between the ages of 18 and 25, creates communities of support for the more than 200 communities they visit. Our Cancer to 5K program introduces or reintroduces, cancer survivors to physical activity by providing the training, encouragement, and support necessary to complete a 5K race with a community of amazing volunteers. Team Fight offers another way for people to come together to create a positive community and get active in the young adult cancer fight. And our National College Scholarship Program currently awards 30 scholarships a year to young adults affected by cancer across the US.
