To my 24 Foundation family,

Basil and kidsFor the past six years I have had the honor and privilege of leading a community that is making incredible strides on behalf of the cancer community. We often refer to the 24 Foundation family, because that’s what it feels like – a close-knit community that rallies around each other and the community year after year, raising millions of dollars to impact thousands of cancer survivors.

It is with deep gratitude that I share with you, my 24 Foundation family, that I have accepted a position to become CEO of The Ability Experience. I have been involved with this organization since college and spent the first nine years of my career serving its mission. It is an organization that has impacted me deeply and I look forward to impacting other college students in the same way, while having more time in Charlotte with my family.

I am excited about the future of 24 Foundation because of your commitment and passion. Our riders, sponsors and volunteers – the 24 Foundation family – continue to raise the bar each and every year. I know it isn’t easy to balance everything with family, work and all the other commitments life brings, but you do, and this is what truly makes 24 Foundation great.

While leaving is bittersweet, I know the best is yet to come for 24 Foundation. We have a board focused on the strategic direction of the organization. The staff is easily the most dedicated group of people I have worked with during my career. The passion they have for the mission and success of the organization is unparalleled.

I am so thankful for the opportunities I was given at 24 Foundation. I have been so deeply impacted by the friendships I made, the survivors I met and by the passion all of you bring to this community. While my last day with 24 Foundation will be Wednesday, March 18, I will continue to do whatever I can to fight this terrible disease. I look forward to riding alongside you this summer!

All my best,
