The Illini 4000 start their cross county ride!

The Illini 4000 are U of I students biking across the country to raise money to support the fight against cancer.

The Illini 4000 is a non-profit organization dedicated to the fight against cancer, the support of those affected by cancer, and the documentation of how cancer impacts the lives of Americans. Through the annual cross-country bike ride, they reach out to new communities and new individuals each year spreading our message of hope and awareness.


This year's cross county ride starts in NYC on May 24 and will end in San Francisco on Aug 3!  We're planning a welcome picnic at Crissy Field, please check back for details.
