The 4K for Cancer ride is an amazing feat: groups of college students and other young adults pledge to bike across the country and raise money for cancer research through their efforts. Last year, 127 brave participants traveled across America, raising nearly $775,000 in the process.

Twenty-four year old Baltimorean Jamie Roberts, a graduate of St. Mary’s College of Maryland, was partway through a ride from Baltimore to Portland, Oregon when she was struck and killed by a truck in Kentucky. Another rider was injured, but is expected to survive.

“I didn’t know Jamie, but I do think of my 4k family everyday and understand what I tight bond teammates have, even in the early stages of the ride,” a former two-time 4K for Cancer participant wrote on Facebook. “I can only imagine the pain that the 2014 riders and her friends and family are feeling right now.”
