More than 1,125 cyclists and supporters of local cancer survivorship and patient navigation programs circled Charlotte’s iconic “Booty Loop” for 24 straight hours this July. Levine Cancer Institute and Levine Children’s Hospital, both of which continue to benefit greatly from the annual cycling event, were well represented – from patient-advocates and caregivers, to support staff and Atrium Health leaders in attendance. This year’s race was a first for 24 Foundation executive director Katy Ryan, who joined the organization last fall and has since inspired new support and renewed participation by devoted cycling enthusiasts and cancer advocates from across the Greater Charlotte region. Just last year the 24 Foundation raised $50,000 for a new hospitality cart that provides healthy snacks for pediatric cancer patients, families and caregivers at Levine Children’s Torrence E. Hemby, Jr. Pediatric Hematology, Oncology and Blood and Marrow Transplant Center. This year’s proceeds, which topped $1.4 million, will continue to support additional patient survivorship programs across Levine Children’s and Levine Cancer Institute.
