plus increased revenue, expanded programming and additional scholarship opportunities
Press Release – BALTIMORE, MD – 24 Foundation, formerly known as 24 Hours of Booty, is back for its 10th year in Maryland. Throughout these 10 years, 24 Baltimore has partnered with the Ulman Cancer Fund for Young Adults, donating .85 cents of every dollar raised to the organization as well as the LIVESTRONG Foundation. 24 Baltimore’s efforts have largely impacted UCF’s programming, budget and ability to serve young adults and their loved ones that have been impacted by cancer.
Since the partnership, UCF has grown exponentially, more than tripling their budget. In fact, the organization will reach its $20 million mark this year. Additionally, 24 Baltimore supports UCF’s scholarship program. The program awarded 21 scholarships in 2007 and now presents more than 36 annually.
This growth is due in part to 24 Foundation’s efforts in supporting the organization, according to Brock Yetso, president and CEO of UCF.
“The support of 24 Foundation over these past 10 years has been instrumental in growing UCF’s programs to support young adults impacted by cancer,” says Yetso. “We’re so grateful for their continued partnership and for the hundreds of riders and walkers who come together every year at 24 Baltimore. I can’t wait to get out there and join them on the loop.”
This year’s 24 Baltimore event is on Saturday, September 23 – Sunday, September 24 from 2 p.m. – 2 p.m. at Johns Hopkins University’s Homewood campus. UCF currently has three teams attending:
UCF will also have a table set up inside 24 Baltimore’s mission tent as well as a speaker at the start of the event and at the Survivor Breakfast.
“We’re thrilled that we’ve been a partner with Ulman Cancer Fund for 10 years,” says Brittany Wilson, Interim Executive Director for 24 Foundation. “It speaks volumes to show the strength of our organizations and the impact we’re making together.”
