#24FacesCancer: Johan’s Midnight Riders
24 Foundation is famous for their teams that make the event an annual affair, morphing from first-time riders or walkers, to professionally uniformed and decorated veterans. Last year, Johan’s Midnight Riders took to the Booty Loop for their first appearance to honor Johan Shattuck.
Johan was a science, teacher, dad, husband, and beloved family member who passed away from bladder cancer at the young age of 34. At the time of his death, his children were just 6 and 1.
Five years after losing Johan, the Shattuck family moved to Charlotte into a home right off of Charlotte’s famed “Booty Loop” and enjoyed being spectators and supportive neighbors for several 24 hours of Booty event. Then, at age 13, Johan’s son, Xavier decided it was time to rally his own 24 Hours of Booty team to memorialize his dad.
