RE: Hopkins 4K for Cancer student cyclists end their journey in San Francisco
WHEN: Sunday, July 30, between 11 a.m. and 12 noon PDT
WHERE: Crissy Field on the south end of the Golden Gate Bridge

Twenty-seven college students who pedaled their racing bikes on a coast-to-coast fund-raising journey known as Hopkins 4K for Cancer this summer will cross the Golden Gate Bridge, where they will conclude their 4,000-mile trek to unite communities across the country in the fight against cancer.

The students, primarily from The Johns Hopkins University, spent the summer cycling across the United States to raise money for the American Cancer Society's Hope Lodge, a residence for out-of-town cancer patients and their families seeking outpatient treatment at Baltimore hospitals. Hosted by local residents along the way, the students participated in many community service projects. The group has raised more than $295,000 for the American Cancer Society in the past five years and has raised $85,000 so far this year. (Visit www.hopkins4k.org for additional information.)

Students plan to arrive as one group on the south end of the Golden Gate Bridge at approximately 11:15 a.m. on Sunday, July 30. A good time for the news media to interview students will be an informal gathering of students and parents between 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. on Saturday, July 29, at China Camp State Park, where the students will be camping July 28 and 29.
