Daily Thought
Family and Community Involvement
Come out and check out this event called 24 Hours of Booty that has become a big part of Charlotte’s charm. So many families have been affected by cancer and we have decided to do something about it. We can honor those who have lost their battle with cancer by remembering them and telling their story. We can ride our bikes to raise money to support organizations that provide resources and help to the cancer community. We can celebrate the survivors by acknowledging them and sharing in their victory over cancer to give hope to those fighting cancer now. We can ride our bikes to keep ourselves fit to help prevent or take on cancer if we ever have to. We can join together as a community and use our collective strength to fight back against a very big threat to our families called CANCER. Please come and see the event for yourself, support the riders, volunteer to help make this event happen, ride as a participant, or most importantly donate a gift to support the families coping with cancer now. Please consider joining me in this fight, and have a lot of fun doing it. The parties around the loop, the night time riding, the pizza party at Midnight, the synergy of a community coming together and illustrating what amazing things we can do when we gather our collective strength and say enough is enough and fight back. I will ride with my daughter Fern again this year, it is our tradition now. Come join this event with us.
“We are community. We ride as family, united by a common goal.
We are achievable. Ride one mile. Ride one hundred miles. It’s a ride to see if everyone can win.
We are survivors. Cancer doesn’t own us. We will put it in its place.
We are fun. Cancer is serious business, but riding doesn’t have to be.” 24HOB Motto
