24 Baltimore Changing the Course of Cancer with 24-hour Event, Year-round Mission

4/24/17

24 Foundation has moved their Maryland event from Columbia into Baltimore to host the 24 Baltimore event, a 24-hour cycling and walking event on Saturday, September 23 – Sunday, September 24 at Johns Hopkins University, 3400 N. Charles St., Baltimore, Md. 24 Baltimore participants can ride or walk as far as their inspiration takes them, in teams or solo, three miles or 300 miles. The event’s headquarters, known as “Nest 24” will include a campground and expo area with live entertainment, endless food and beverages, a kids’ zone area, free massages and mission-based programming. The event will also feature walker registration opportunities and a kids’ ride. 24 Baltimore hosts over 400 riders and 200 walkers who will raise funds for the Ulman Cancer Fund for Young Adults and the LIVESTRONG Foundation.

24 Foundation, formerly known as 24 Hours of Booty, is back for its 10th year in Maryland. Celebrating 16 years total, the new 24 Foundation will continue to focus on its mission to inspire and engage communities to make an immediate impact on the lives of people affected by cancer.

“This is the same great organization and event, but with an exciting new vision,” said Spencer Lueders, organization founder. “It’s an incredible time for the organization as we head into our 16th year of making a difference in the lives of those affected by cancer. I’m thrilled to be along for the ride and part of this important cause that will always be near and dear to me.”

“We are very excited about our rebrand as 24 Foundation, which enables us to expand our partnership opportunities to further impact the local and national cancer community,” said 24 Foundation Executive Director Mallory Walsh. “Through our new approach, we will be changing the path of cancer navigation and survivorship.”
