Southwestern Oklahoma State University student in Weatherford is participating in a Great Cycle Challenge and apparently he impressed the sponsoring organization enough to have his picture on a billboard in New York City Times Square.

Sandecki said cancer is the biggest killer of children from disease in the United States. Over 15,700 children are diagnosed every year, and sadly, 38 children die of cancer every week.

“Kids should be living life, not fighting for it,” Sandecki said.

Sandecki is raising money to help fight child cancer by committing to riding his bike 400 miles for the Great Cycle Challenge. Sandecki currently is working on clinical rotations with the SWOSU College of Pharmacy and is scheduled to graduate this December 2020.
