24 Hours of Booty July 24th and 25th

LR-0536Kristen, I love you and I miss you.  Thanks for inspiring me to be a better person.

With over $50,000 in donations over the years, the In Memory of Kristen Weaver All-Star team will roll again!

Team Purpose:

To honor Kristen’s memory and help raise money and awareness for cancer programs.

Motivate Me:

The 24 Hours of Booty is a world class 24-hour long charity bicycle ride that takes place just down the block from my house.  It’s a 3-mile loop.  I did over 80 mind numbing laps last year.  I’ve been training all year, I think I can go further…

\Make a donation

Please consider making a secure online donationChecks can be made out to ‘24 HOURS OF BOOTY‘ c/o Weldon Weaver, 2109 Scott Ave, Charlotte 28203.  501 (c)3.  Tax ID = 20-3768277.  The net proceeds from your tax deductible donation supports Lance Armstrong Foundation (50%) and Carolina charities (50%) like the Keep Pounding Fund at Carolinas Medical Center and the Brain Tumor Fund For The Carolinas

\\ Volunteer at a cancer support center or hospital

Volunteers are needed to answer phones in family waiting rooms, assist/escort patients and assist with patient workshops like wig fittings, cap knitting and needlephobia meditation (Kristen’s favorite).

\\\Provide a support center with monthly wish-list items

Non-profit organizations are always in need of cleaning supplies, office supplies, folding chairs, cell phones,etc…

\\\\Participate in a cancer fund raising event

Walks, rides, golf tournaments and galas (and poker games?) are happening in your area.

This event has provided me:

1) The opportunity to grieve my beloved wife

2) The pleasure of hosting my friends and family

3) The motivation from donations, letters and words to fight for cancer survivors in memory of Kristen

Be sure to share your own philanthropic initiatives with me.
