YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WYTV) — A cross country cycle peddled its way into Youngstown Saturday.

The 4-K for cancer ride raises money for young adults with cancer.

31 college students are taking part in the four thousand plus mile ride.

The group is Saturday night at the First Presbyterian Church on Wick Avenue before starting the next leg of the trip.

Each cyclist had to raise 45-hundred dollars to do the trip.

All of the money raised goes to young adults battling cancer.

“The reason we focus on young adults is because cancer is often focused into the pediatric region or aging population or just adults, but young adults people like teenagers, people in their early 20s even late 20s that demographic I don’t want to say is ignored but it often overlooked,” said William Weise, 4K for Cancer Ride.

Cyclists ride 70 to 80 miles most days.

They have had some 100 mile days.
