In 2014, I participated in my first bicycle fundraising event to further cancer research. During the fundraising period, a good friend of mine lost his battle to cancer at the age of 27
The seriousness of cancer became very real. I had known that my friend was diagnosed but was under the impression that he was winning the battle. With very short notice, less than 24 hours, I was informed that he was in fact losing the battle very quickly. I didn't even get a chance to have one last phone call with him. An organization, called the 24 Foundation set out to aid the revolution of cancer navigation and survivorship. Over 16 years ago, the 24 Foundation came to fruition with one man on a bike pedaling for 24 hours with a goal to change the conversation about cancer.
I'll be showing my support for the 24 Foundation by committing my efforts to raise awareness, fundraising (including my own personal donations), and participating in the 2017 24 Hours of Booty Charlotte charity bike ride event in Charlotte, NC. The ride will take 24 hours (straight) and require a significant physical effort and serious training plan. I commit to ride 160 miles (that's an average of 6mph for 24 hours) to honor little Camden, the son of a friend who only lived for 160 days after losing the battle to leukemia.
