What: Hopkins 4K for Cancer student cyclists end their journey in San Francisco
When: Monday, July 29
Where: The Golden Gate Bridge

Eighteen students at the Johns Hopkins University have spent the summer cycling across America to raise both money for cancer research and awareness for the disease's prevention. The student-organized trip will end at the Golden Gate Bridge on Monday, July 29, after leaving San Jose in the morning. To mark the trip's conclusion at the mouth of San Francisco Bay, the students will dip their bikes' front tires in the water before a crowd of cheering family and friends. The students christened their back tires in the waters of Baltimore's Inner Harbor when they hit the road June 2.

Hopkins 4K for Cancer has stopped in several big cities and small towns along its 4,000-mile route. Hosted by local residents, the students participated in many community service projects, including coaching a team of Special Olympics cyclists in Greensburg, Pa., and sewing a quilt with residents of the Midland Hospice in Topeka, Kan. The group, including six students from other colleges, raised $27,000 for the American Cancer Society. For more information or to speak with students participating in Hopkins 4K for Cancer, contact Amy Cowles at 410-516-7160.
