Registration is now open for 24 Foundation’s signature fundraiser – the 22nd Season of 24 Hours of Booty charity non-competitive cycling and walking event.
This year’s 24 Hours of Booty presented by Levine Cancer Institute will occur from 7 p.m. Friday, July 28 to 7 p.m. Saturday, July 29. Participants can sign up for the in-person or virtual “UnLooped” event. The in-person event will take place on the “Booty Loop” in Charlotte’s Myers Park neighborhood.
“Participating in 24 Hours of Booty as a participant, volunteer or sponsor is an incredible way to show up for our cancer community and change the course of cancer,” said Katherine Murphy, executive director of 24 Foundation. “We are excited to bring everyone together again this summer to ride, stride, and enjoy a celebration of hope, healing and connecting.”
All cycling and walking participants must register (individually or with a team) online at 24foundation.org. The following are the registration and fundraising requirements:
- Adult Riders/Walker (18 and up): Pay a $75 registration fee and raise a minimum of $400
- Youth Riders/Walkers (ages 12-17): Pay a $75 registration fee and raise a minimum of $200
- Child Riders (ages 8-11) and Walkers (ages 4-11): Pay a $50 registration fee and raise a minimum of $50
- Virtual “UnLooped” registration is $45 for adults and $25 for children (11 and under); there is no fundraising minimum
Registered in-person participants receive the following: online fundraising tools, access to templates and fundraising ideas, fundraising level incentives, an event T-shirt, full bike and medical support, entertainment, as well as meals, snacks and drinks throughout the event.
24 Hours of Booty is not a race or an endurance event. Riders and Walkers can set their own mileage goals and get on and off the police-secured course as much as they would like throughout the 24 hours. Child riders (ages 8-11) are permitted on the course during the Survivor Lap (with a parent or guardian) and from 12-7 p.m. on Saturday, July 29.
Myers Park Traditional School and Queens University of Charlotte will again serve as home to the event headquarters – known as “Bootyville” – where participants camp, eat and recharge when not out on the course.
In the past 22 years, 24 Foundation event participants have raised more than $26 million to support local and national cancer navigation and survivorship programs and services. Local cancer beneficiaries include Atrium Health Levine Cancer Institute and Atrium Health Levine Children’s Hospital and Queens University of Charlotte. For more information, visit 24foundation.org.
