This summer, Olney resident Jackie Weiss will bicycle more than 4,000 miles across the country as she spends 70 days pedaling from Baltimore to Seattle.
Weiss is a sophomore at the University of Maryland and a 2012 Sherwood High School graduate.
She will be traveling with other college students as part of the 4K for Cancer program, raising money for the Ulman Cancer Fund for Young Adults.
The Ulman Cancer Fund for Young Adults is a nonprofit organization dedicated to enhancing lives by supporting, educating and connecting young adults and their loved ones who are affected by cancer.
As the riders travels across the country, they aim to offer hope, inspiration and support to cancer communities along the way. They will spend service days with young adults affected by cancer.
