A group of volunteers brightened the day of patients at University of Virginia’s Emily Couric Clinical Cancer Center Wednesday.

The 4K for Cancer group is cycling across country and making pit stops at hospitals along the way. It's in an effort to raise money for young adults impacted by cancer.

"We're going to deliver some chemo care packages to cancer patients and talk with them, get to know them, tour the facility, so we can just use that as inspiration when we ride,” said Liliya Mironoba, 4K for Cancer cyclist.

The cyclists are traveling from Maryland to California. They have 60 days to complete the 4,500-mile ride.
