GreerWalker Cycling Team Again Turning Pedals For Cancer Funding

Aug 2, 2017

(Charlotte, N.C.) – As a participant in the July 28th to July 29th, 2017 24 Hours of Booty ride, the eight-person cycling team of GreerWalker LLP raised over $31,000 in donations for national and local cancer initiatives, finishing as the #8 team out of 132.

According to GreerWalker partner and team captain David Walker, “For the ninth consecutive year, our team of GreerWalker professionals, clients, and friends of the firm participated in the 24 Hours of Booty cycling event to raise funds to help fight cancer, here in Charlotte and across the country. 24 Hours of Booty is one of the many ways that we exhibit one of our core values to be visible and active in our community. We appreciate all of our generous supporters for their financial contributions, words of encouragement, cheering us along during the event, and not making too much fun of the way we looked in our spandex cycling jerseys.”

24 Hours of Booty supports several local charities including the Levine Cancer Institute, the Levine Children’s Hospital, and Hospitality House and, nationally, is the Official 24 Hour Cycling event of the LIVESTRONG Foundation. Total proceeds of this year’s ride exceeded $1.7 million. Special honors for fundraising go to GreerWalker Corporate Finance managing director Gary Parker who was the second most successful fundraiser of this year’s 1,200 riders and received the 24 Hours of Booty orange jersey for his outstanding contribution. In addition to David Walker and Gary Parker, GreerWalker team members included Johnathan McLester, Elizabeth Paluso, Jonathan Thornton, and Nick Harris.
