Free Bikes 4 Kidz Maryland is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit geared toward helping all children ride into a happier, healthier childhood by providing bikes to kids most in need. The public donates gently used bikes in October; we clean, refurbish, and repair them with scores of volunteers. We work with schools, government agencies, churches, and nonprofit organizations to identify recipients, and in December we give them bikes we’ve collected and refurbished along with a new helmet. In three years we have collected and given away over 3700 bicycles to Maryland children in need.
The Ulman Foundation aims to provide a community of support for young adults, and their families, impacted by cancer. We offer free housing, support groups, survivorship programs, patient navigation, and many other resources in hopes that one day no young adult faces cancer alone.

Join our 4K for Cancer team and head cross country, or join our Ulman community and see how you can make a difference in the lives of those facing a cancer diagnosis.
