Hello! My name is Alec Deuter and I am a senior studying architecture at the University of Illinois. I am from Elmhurst, Illinois which is about 15 miles west of Chicago. On campus, I am a member of Greek life, as well as some real estate development organizations. I just recently returned from Barcelona, Spain, where I studied architecture for 9 months. I come from a family of 7 siblings, and I love spending time with them and my friends. I am so excited to have the opportunity to bike across the country this summer!

Personal Statement

Everyone knows someone that has been impacted by cancer. I always think about all of the people in my life and how grateful I am to have great friends and family. I also think about how much I care about them and how horrible it would be to have anyone go through fighting cancer, while also thinking about the people I know that have had to go through the fight. I am doing this ride for the people that didn’t make it, as well as the survivors, caregivers, and all those affected. I want to show my support and willingness to help and be a supporter against the fight.
