Thirteen cyclists riding to fight cancer in young adults toured the Nancy N. and J.C. Lewis Cancer and Research Pavilion at St. Joseph's/Candler Hospital on Wednesday.

The cyclists were a part of a larger group taking part in the Ulman Cancer Fund's Key to Keys Ride, going from Baltimore, MD to Key West, FL.

During the tour, the riders were able to see all of the cutting edge technology used at the Lewis Cancer and Research Pavilion.

Eight cancer survivors were part of the group that toured the facility.

On April 5, 38 cyclists and support staff met in Baltimore and set off on a 1,500 mile ride to Key West to raise awareness and raise money to help young adults affected by cancer. The cyclists are expected to arrive in Key West on Saturday. For more information on the Ulman Cancer Fund, visit their website.
