Twenty-six students—23 of them from Johns Hopkins—spent their summer cycling across the country in the fourth annual fundraising journey known as Hopkins 4K for Cancer. Starting off on May 29 with a ceremonial dip of their back tires in Baltimore’s Inner Harbor, the students pedaled for three months and some 4,000 miles to the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco, where they celebrated by dipping their front tires into the water. This year’s journey raised $23,000 for the American Cancer Society’s Hope Lodge, a residence for out-of-town cancer patients seeking treatment at Baltimore hospitals. In its first three cross-country rides, the group raised $160,000 for the American Cancer Society.
