24 Foundation today announced new appointments to their nonprofit board, as well as additions to their team of staff members. Bryan McMillan and Justin Hage have been appointed to 24 Foundation Board of Directors and are based in Maryland and Indiana respectively. In addition to the board appointment, 24 Foundation has added two part-time staff members Damian Magarelli and Anina deNobriga. 

Celebrating 16 years, the newly re-branded, 24 Foundation continues to focus on its mission to inspire and engage communities to make an immediate impact on the lives of people affected by cancer.

McMillan became involved with 24 Foundation in 2008 with the arrival of the 24 Hours of Booty event in Columbia, Md., now named 24 Baltimore. He has captained a team each year since named Team bootySTRONG. He is Managing Partner of M&L Global Consultancy, with a proven record of establishing operational capabilities and profitable ventures in over 15 countries. With previous nonprofit board experience, McMillan will offer board guidance on strategic direction.  

Hage became involved with 24 Foundation in 2013 when he rode as a survivor with the doctors and staff on the IU Simon Cancer Center team, the Pedaling Cures. He currently works for the law firm of Bingham Greenebaum Doll in Indianapolis, Ind., where his practice focuses on economic development, real estate and government services. Hage will offer board guidance on community partnerships and sponsorships.

In addition to the board appointments, 24 Foundation welcomes part-time staff member Magarelli as Fundraising and Recruitment Coordinator for the Baltimore event market. Prior to joining 24 Foundation, Magarelli worked for the Alzheimer’s Association as a Development Manager managing special events, volunteers and fundraising. He is based on Baltimore. 

At the organization headquarters in Charlotte, 24 Foundation welcomes its newest staff member deNobriga as Donations and Matching Gift Coordinator. Prior to joining 24 Foundation, deNobriga served as a volunteer for the Baston Children’s Hospital in the cancer wing, but left after realizing she wanted to be connected more to the survivors and patients. deNobriga will primarily be responsible for processing donations and matching gifts, as well as assisting with fundraising.

“We are excited to grow our team and our board,” said Mallory Walsh, executive director of 24 Foundation. “Their respective talents and expertise will help us further our mission of actively supporting cancer patient navigation and survivorship programs.”
