Speed for Need took the speed up a notch this weekend, to the tune of 25-30 miles per hour, by participating in the 24 Foundation’s marquee fundraising event. 24 Hours of Booty is a 24 hour bicycle race held just outside of Uptown Charlotte. The event raised over $1.8 million for cancer navigation and survivor ship programs this year, and has raised over $21 million total. Speed for Need took a break from the normal running and pushing and instead pulled several cancer fighters and survivors around the Booty Loop to participate in the race. One of our Track Commanders, John, had been practicing to ride a tandem bike, behind his good friend Marshall, but that was derailed by a health setback leading up to the race. John has been battling an inoperable cancerous brain tumor for the past 10 months, so it meant everything to him to participate in the event and show his support for cancer fighting programs. John led the Survivor Lap, the first lap of the event, whilst being pulled by Speed for Need in the orange chair. You can see him in the event video below. We were so honored to meet him and his family, and have him in our thoughts and prayers. It was our first event pulling the racing chairs behind bicycles and was an awesome service experience. WHO PUSHES WHO!
