Team A M King, sponsored by Charlotte-based A M King, participated in the 24 Foundation‘s 17th Annual 24 Hours of Booty community cycling event to benefit cancer survivorship and patient programs. On the last Saturday in July, a total of 26 A M King employees, relatives, friends and clients joined the 1,112 riders and 134 walkers from 23 states on the hot and steamy Booty Loop, a 3-mile course through Charlotte’s Myers Park.
Team A M King riders included our newest employees, a 12-year company veteran and many folks in between.
“I had a close friend in high school who died of leukemia, so he is a big reason why I ride,” explained Garrison Hurd, a senior at UNC Charlotte and an A M King project engineer intern. “It’s great to see the huge turnout every year and how much this cause means to people all over the country. I plan to participate every year.”
Barbara Harris, an A M King project assistant who will soon be celebrating her second anniversary with a new heart, rode with Team A M King this year for the first time. “I rode to prove to myself that I could do it, but also for those who have helped me heal and get where I am today. It was an inspiring event for people of all skill levels benefiting great organizations.”
The record-breaking event raised more than $1.8 million that will aid cancer survivors, patients and their families. Beneficiaries include Levine Cancer Institute, Levine Children’s Hospital, and the Livestrong Foundation.
