RE: Hopkins 4K for Cancer hits the road at 9 a.m., Sunday, May 29
WHERE: The corner of Light and Pratt streets in Baltimore

Twenty-three students from The Johns Hopkins University and three friends from other schools will kick off the fourth annual fund-raising cross-country bicycle journey known as Hopkins 4K for Cancer. After an hour-long event on the steps of Shriver Hall on the Homewood campus, 3400 N. Charles St., the students will pedal to the Inner Harbor to ceremoniously dip their bikes' back tires in the water before embarking on their 4,000 mile coast-to-coast trip. The journey will end on Aug. 31 at the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco. Upon their arrival on the West Coast, the students will dip their bikes' front tires in the water.

The purpose of the trip is to raise $60,000 for the American Cancer Society's Hope Lodge, a residence for out- of-town cancer patients seeking treatment at Baltimore hospitals. To reach the students this weekend regarding media coverage, contact co-directors Franca Kraenzlin at (914) 523-4421, or Travis Snow at (410) 258-0068.
