Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Health

Programs: See schedule o. See schedule i for cash grants. 2017 was an incredible year of growth for 24 foundation, as our mission to inspire and engage communities to make an immediate impact on the lives of people affected by cancer was fulfilled. While fulfilling this mission, the organization underwent a rebranding, from 24 hours of booty to 24 foundation, which will allow for more individual and corporate donors, and strategic partners in the future. Additionally, more than $2 million was raised for cancer navigation and survivorship programs primarily through the peer-to-peer fundraising efforts of more than 2,500 cyclists and walkers across our three 24-hour events. The host cities for the 24 foundation events are indianapolis, in, charlotte, nc, and new in 2017, baltimore, md. Below are the accomplishments of our organization in 2017, including new beneficiaries funded through our first annual formal grants process:our contribution to livestrong, the national beneficiary of 24 foundation, was directed to maintain the livestrong patient navigation programs supporting cancer survivorship. These navigation programs continue to address extraordinarily important needs of cancer survivors facing questions and concerns with topics such as insurance, employment, finances, emotions, medical options and fertility preservation. Our contribution of a 4-year, $1. 5m commitment, that is to be paid in 2016 through 2019, to carolinas healthcare foundation will be distributed at the levine cancer institute and the levine children's hospital. Our funding to the levine cancer institute provided important services to cancer survivors undergoing treatment that are not covered by traditional insurance plans. Such services include, but are not limited to, patient navigation, dietician consultation, art therapy, support groups, yoga and tai chi, acupuncture and more. In addition to these services, 24 foundation has continued to fund the carolinas cancer wellness program for a tenth year. The cancer wellness program is a twelve-week program designed to assist in managing the physical side effects of cancer treatment during treatment and recovery phases for survivors. Through our support of levine children's hospital [lch], we provided funding for the childhood cancer champions program. This $300,000 commitment helps to improve the long-term health and well-being of childhood cancer survivors by promoting adherence to follow-up appointments and screen tests. In addition to providing timely referrals to specialists, such as psychological counseling for childhood cancer patients, these funds also provide enhanced educational material and facilitation of transition from lch to adult care at levine cancer institute. Our contribution to indiana university simon cancer center of indianapolis, indiana, a new partner in 2017, allowed 24 foundation to support the highest level of patient care at iu health, with their focus on developing more effective approaches to cancer prevention, diagnosis and treatment. Specifically, 24 foundation is funding patients through advanced cancer navigation assistance, survivorship programs and resources. Our contribution to ulman cancer fund for young adults in columbia, maryland allowed 24 foundation to narrow our cancer navigation and survivorship services to young adults battling cancer. The patient navigation program funded by 24 foundation has been able to employ cancer navigators in mid-atlantic hospitals to support young adults ages 18-40 battling cancer, with 130 patients benefitting from advanced navigation support and 390 patients preserving their fertility through this service. In addition to this support, funding has allowed the production of 2,600 chemo care bags, supporting the different needs of patients during chemotherapy, and provided 65 survivors the opportunity to participate in cancer to 5k, a rehabilitation and empowerment program. Our contribution to carolina breast friends, a new grant recipient in 2017, allowed 24 foundation to supply outreach items to breast cancer survivors, such as prosthesis, wigs, comfort chemotherapy bags, mastectomy pillows, drainage bags and inspiration jars at no cost to the survivor. Funding also supports the pink house, which provides a sanctuary for survivors to use for wellness, education, resource lending, meditation and reflection. Our contribution to casting for recovery, a new grant recipient in 2017, allowed 24 foundation to fund three 2. 5 day retreats in indiana for female breast cancer survivors, where they combine breast cancer educational experiences and peer support with the therapeutic sport of fly fishing. Our contribution to go jen go gave 24 foundation the opportunity to provide individuals and families battling breast cancer financial assistance and emotional support throughout north and south carolina. Specifically, funding is used to subsidize rent, pay bills, and conduct home and car repairs for those battling breast cancer. Our contribution to hospitality house of charlotte, a new grant recipient in 2017, allowed 24 foundation to provide 416 nights of lodging for families experiencing medical and/or financial crisis. Overnight lodging allowed families who are fighting cancer at a charlotte hospital the ability to stay close to their loved one undergoing treatment, and gives the patient the opportunity to stay closer to their source of treatement. Our contribution to wind river cancer wellness retreats & programs gave 24 foundation the opportunity to provide cancer survivors with a getaway to a pristine, natural environment in order to learn how to better manage their energy and connect with others dealing with similar issues. Programs include nutritional, physical, mental, and emotional guidance from experts and peers for individuals surviving a cancer diagnosis. 24 foundation funding provides an entire retreat each year at zero cost to cancer survivors. Our contribution to queens university gave 24 foundation the opportunity to support students affected by cancer through scholarship and endowment funding, providing financial assistance for their undergraduate experience to ensure cancer has the least impact possible on their educational process. Funds raised and distributed throughout 2017 allowed 24 foundation the opportunity to affect cancer patients and survivors, and their families, nationally and in our three event communities. Our mission is to engage and inspire communities, through our events, to make an immediate impact on the lives of people affected by cancer through the above listed beneficiaries. We are continuing to fulfill this mission and each year we are getting closer to our vision of providing cancer navigation and survivorship services for all. Cancer navigation services improve the quality of life for people affected by cancer, mainly through the one on one support and guided knowledge of available survivorship programs. 24 foundation had an incredible impact on advancing cancer navigation and survivorship services in 2017. With an impressive year of fundraising, organizational growth and mission impact in the rearview mirror, 24 foundation is poised for a record breaking 2018 through continued strategic enhancement of our organizations infrastructure, improving the quality and replicability of our events through new partners, and ultimately laying the groundwork for 24 foundation impact expansion.

I have volunteered with this organization in Atlanta since 2010 and Charlotte this year. They have a great sign up and check in process, the organizers are very helpful and I love the free Tshirt and food! I helped with the VIP breakfast which was great. Serving yummy warm food to people that had been riding all night and they were so appreciative. I have also worked packet pick up and checked in volunteers. A great group, fun event, and I look forward to this year!

I have done volunteer work in many areas for this organization. Packet Pickup, Set up, the Booty Store, as well as helping with putting out food. I was busy most of the time and the time flew by. The people are friendly and the cyclists are enthusiastic about raising money for LIVESTRONG, Ullman Cancer Center, Children's Healthcare of Atlanta, and others. Even as the ride has grown to four different cities each event feels like family. I enjoy being there and often stay after the time I signed up so that I can help or even cheer the riders on.
