The 2022 24,000 Mile Challenge Event Guide is here!

This February, it’s your chance to take big steps for small heroes in Charlotte. 24 Foundation is committed to changing the course of cancer for survivors big… and small, which is why the second annual 24,000 Mile Challenge provides funding to our pediatric oncology beneficiaries Levine Children’s Hospital, Claire’s Army, and Pinky Swear Foundation.

The 24,000 Mile Challenge is an exciting build-your-own event using walking, running, rowing, jumping, swimming, yes, even biking. However you choose to move on February 5, 2022, you’ll help us achieve our audacious goal of conquering 24,000 miles moving around Charlotte together. Learn more and register today!

Don’t forget to visit any of our local double-dip locations to double your miles automatically! Log your final mile totals here and help us reach our 24,000 mile goal! Plus, when you tag us on Facebook or Instagram (@24_foundation) with your event photos, you’ll be entered to win some amazing prizes!
