What: Hopkins 4K for Cancer student cyclists end their journey in San Francisco
When: Tuesday, July 29, between noon - 2 p.m.
Where: Presidio Park

Keep your eyes on Presidio Park in San Francisco on Tuesday, July 29, between noon and 2 p.m., when 25 college students, including 20 students from Johns Hopkins University, will triumphantly pedal their racing bikes to the water to mark the end of a 4,000-mile coast-to-coast journey known as Hopkins 4K for Cancer.

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 1.) The students spent the summer cycling across America to raise both money for cancer research and awareness for the disease's prevention. Hosted by local residents along the way, the students participated in many community service projects. The group has raised $40,000 for the American Cancer Society.

California connections:

May 2003 graduates Andrew Stoddard of Sacramento and Sumeet Vadera of Cupertino.
