Hopkins 4K for Cancer cyclists head out on 4,000-mile
In May 2002, 18 Johns Hopkins students jumped on their
bicycles in Baltimore to pedal across America to raise
money for cancer research and awareness for the disease's
prevention. Their journey, dubbed Hopkins 4K for Cancer,
has become an annual tradition, so far bringing in $276,000
through donations and sale of Hopkins 4K merchandise.
This year's group of 20 riders set off from Homewood's
Shriver Hall at 7:30 a.m. on Sunday, May 28, heading first
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 is scheduled to end on
July 30 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.
To date, this year's fundraising effort has netted
more than $70,000 for the American Cancer Society's Hope
Lodge, a residence for out-of-town cancer patients seeking
treatment at Baltimore hospitals.

mission, and to follow its journey, go to www.hopkins4k.org.
