Joe Vogelbacher, co-founder of Sugar Creek Brewing and 24 Foundation Board Chair, founded this event in memory of his sister Michelle who battled a rare form of liver cancer with remarkable courage for over five years before passing in 2017. Michelle's dedication to helping others, particularly veterans, inspired the creation of Michelle's Mighty Mission, aimed at raising funds for cancer research and assisting those struggling with the disease. This event seeks to continue Michelle's efforts by supporting individuals impacted by cancer.
