WVII Interviews Sophomore About 4K for Cancer

WVII (Channel 7) talked with University of Maine sophomore Matt Dexter about his summer plans — taking part in the 4K for Cancer.

For 42 days, Dexter and 33 other college students will team up to complete a 4,000-mile team run from San Francisco, Calif. to Baltimore, Md. Their goals are to raise awareness of cancer and raise money for cancer research.

“It’s important to me because my mother passed away from cancer in 2008. I realized I wasn’t alone and there’s a lot of people out there who are affected by this terrible, terrible disease,” says Dexter, who is majoring in psychology.

Along the way, Dexter and his teammates will visit hospitals and give college scholarships to young adults fighting cancer.
