Team StructureMan wrapped up a successful fund raising campaign by participating in the 24 Foundation’s cycling and walking event in both Charlotte, North Carolina and Indianapolis, Indiana.
During the two events’ 24-hour timespan, more than 190 teams and 1,650 participants rode or walked a three-mile loop through local neighborhoods in both Charlotte and Indianapolis. The noncompetitive event celebrates the participant’s efforts to make a difference in the lives of cancer patients and survivors. Many participants are cancer survivors or have a personal connection with a survivor. The host neighborhood joins the celebration by having parties and cheering on participants throughout the entire occasion. 24 Hours is presented by the 24 Foundation, which seeks to raise awareness and funds to support cancer navigation and survivorship. The 24 Foundation works with local and national cancer organizations like Livestrong, the Levine Cancer Institute, the IU Health Simon Cancer Center and others.
The 24 Foundation holds a special place in many Shiel Sexton employees’ hearts. In fact, Shiel Sexton is a national corporate partner of the 24 Foundation, and Southeast President Ben Wilhelm is a current board member. Wilhelm drove over 1,000 miles from Charlotte to partake in the Indianapolis 24 Hours event. The Indianapolis office’s Tim Malarney, another longtime supporter of the 24 Hour Foundation, made the trek to Charlotte to attend its 24 Hours a few weeks later.
Overall, the Shiel Sexton team rode more than 825 miles and raised over $14,100 raised for the 24 Foundation. Congratulations, Team StructureMan, on this great achievement!
