The 4K Cancer Bike Riders, Team Portland, visited First Lutheran Church recently after a ride cross-country from Philadelphia.


The 4K Cancer Bike Riders, Team Portland, visited First Lutheran Church for meals and an overnight stay on Aug. 5. It was the 64th day of a 70-day trip from Philadelphia. Records were set by the group for the most miles traveled in one day, with four riders traveling 202 miles.

The 4K program is part of the Ullman Cancer Fund for Young Adults, which provides support services for millions of young people diagnosed with cancer. The fund also provides college scholarships for survivors and young people whose parents have cancer.

First Lutheran is also hosting bike riders for multiple sclerosis Thursday and today. This group has a rest day in Astoria, where they will connect with local MS patients and complete service projects. Anyone interested in connecting with this group can do so by calling the church at 503-325-6252.
