4K for Cancer Team Seattle returns to the North Beach in August. This is the fourth year St. John's Chapel by the Sea PCUSA of Moclips has hosted this group. There are 27 bicyclists in the 2018 version. They have cycled over 4,000 miles to fundraise for young adults with cancer.

Everyone is invited to meet and greet with them 6-8 pm, Wednesday, August 8. There will be pizza and more to enjoy while you converse with members.

"These are an inspiring group of people. Each year, we hear their stories, learn about the trip and are amazed at the calibre of person you find with 4K for cancer," St. John's Chapel by the Sea PCUSA church member said.

Thursday morning, there is a Dedication Circle. The group gets ready for the day's ride. On their legs, names are written of those whom they are dedicating their journey to, that day. It may be a person dealing with, survivor of, or who has died from cancer.

"We would like to thank Ocean Shores IGA, Frontager's Pizza, Seagate Restaurant and Lounge and Moclips Country Store and Deli for donating food for the riders." A local to Ocean Shores said.

Also, as they head through Grays Harbor, Thursday, August 9. Team Seattle members will be interviewed on SUNNY 102.1 radio by Rhys Davis. Jodesha Broadcasting will also include interviews on The Jet with Johnny Madson and on Coffee Talk KBKW with Doug McDowell.

Locals thank ShuJack's Bar and Grill for providing Philly sandwhiches for lunch. They praise all of the people and businesses that are involved in the 4K benefit for cancer and make it a goal for anyone traveling through Grays Harbor to get involved in such a great cause.
