EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WEHT) – 25 runners from the Ulman 4k For Cancer Foundation visited patients who were receiving infusion treatments at the Deaconess Hospital Infusion Center.
The runners are a group of young adults whose lives have been impacted by cancer in one way or another and are spending their summer running 4,000 miles across the country.
Their run started in San Francisco on June 16th and will end in Baltimore on August 3rd.
4K runners chatted with patients and even brought them decorated “Chemo Care Packs” filled with items like socks to keep their feet warm, crossword puzzles, and word searches.
The care packs even had inspiring messages written on them like, “You’re a Rockstar!” and “You’re a superstar!”.
The patients were grateful for the visit and the thoughtful gifts.
4K for Cancer is a program of the Ulman Cancer Fund for Young Adults. The Ulman Cancer Fund is a non-profit organization that changes lives by creating a community of support for young adults, and their loved ones, impacted by cancer.
