Who Benefits From 24 Hours of Booty
We all benefit when we join together and work as a community. This ride created in 2001 has been a huge benefactor for cancer care and survivorship here in Charlotte and nationwide. The Levine Cancer Center at CMC has been a big beneficiary of this charity. Here is a list of organizations that have benefited from our efforts. When these organizations receive assistance, usually in the form of money or volunteering, the care and mortality of cancer gets better and the families coping with cancer get more help. When we come together as a community to help solve our challenges, our entire community gets stronger. With all the distractions of the modern world that separate us, this gathering together reminds us we are stronger together than apart. The good will and service on display at this event always serves to remind me of the good in people. It is the kind hearted ordinary people who just want to do something to help and make where we live just a little better. We benefit ourselves as we serve others. Please considersupporting my daughter Fern’s ride at this year’s event.

Nutrition Tip: The Perfect Meal
In planning the menu for my “Perfect Meal” the rules I imposed on myself were as follows:

  1. Everything on the menu must have been hunted, gathered, or grown by me.
  2. The menu should feature at least one representative of each edible kingdom: animal, vegetable, and fungus, as well as an edible mineral (the salt).
  3. Everything served must be in season and fresh. The meal would reflect not only the places that supplied its ingredients, but a particular moment in time.
  4. No money may be spent on the meal, though already purchased items in the pantry could be deployed as needed.
  5. I would cook the meal myself
