As part of the Jan. 24 celebration, 24 Foundation staff, volunteers and supporters will ride a Trolley Pub throughout Uptown from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. They will distribute discount cards with offers to several businesses.
“We look forward to this fun celebration on Jan. 24 and to getting as many folks as possible involved in 24 Hours of Booty to help change the course of cancer,” Executive Director Katy Ryan said.
Registration for riders costs $75 for ages 12 and older and $50 for child riders ages 8 to 11. Registration for all walkers costs $30. New this year is a virtual-participant category for $25, for those who aren’t able to attend the event.
Myers Park Traditional School and Queens University of Charlotte will serve as home to the event’s headquarters, known as “Bootyville,” where participants camp, eat and recharge when not on the course.
