What We're All About

Mission

24 Foundation’s mission is to inspire and engage communities to make an immediate impact on the lives of those affected by cancer. For us, that means more than funding research and goes beyond finding a cure. To 24 Foundation, that means investing in services that untangle the maze of appointments, tests, and treatments after diagnosis, and funding programs to increase the quality of life for survivors decades into the future.

Founded in 2002 by one man riding a bike for 24 hours, 24 Foundation’s signature annual events now serve as celebrations of survivorship, the power of peer-to-peer fundraising, and the spirit that our participants live with every day. Event participants commit to cycling or walking as much or as little as they’d like within 24 hours. It isn’t a race. Miles don’t matter. It’s an experience, celebration, and triumph.

United by the common vision of cancer navigation and survivorship for all, 24 Foundation has raised more than $27 million to date to support our mission.

24 Foundation is a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit charity located in Charlotte, North Carolina.

About 24 Foundation

Every day we are inspired by those facing cancer, and that’s never more evident than at 24 Foundation’s signature event, 24 Hours of Booty. Far more than just a cycling and walking event, 24 Hours of Booty is a celebration of hope, healing, and coming together in the face of adversity. Since 2002 thousands of participants have spent the last weekend in July together sharing stories, making lifelong connections, and inspiring all of us to continue fighting for those affected by cancer.

Show Up for Those with Cancer

24 Hours of Booty isn’t 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. Set up a tent in Bootyville to relax in between your trips around the beautiful Myers Park Booty Loop and enjoy catered meals, snacks, and drinks in our food tent, including a midnight pizza party. We are one team with one goal, and that is having an immediate impact on the lives of those affected by cancer. Since 2002, your passion for the cancer community has raised more than $27 million dollars for patient navigation and wellness programs provided through Levine Cancer Institute, Levine Children’s Hospital, and our other Beneficiaries. These programs include integrative oncology, acupuncture, healing touch, massage therapy, nurse navigators and much more.
