Update from Booty Headquarters!
24 Hours of Booty is almost here! Thank you for all you are doing - fundraising, spreading the word about the event, and offering to volunteer. We are planning another amazing event for you this year. Here are the latest updates.

Do you know how professional cycling races spice things up? They throw in a prime! (pronounced "preem," for no good reason). A prime is an intermediate sprint during the race for some sort of prize. The announcer rings the bell as the pack comes through the start/finish area to let them know that a prime is coming up. On the next lap, the first rider over the line wins the prize. You are a fundraiser in this 24 Hours of Booty pack, and the bell is about to ring! Keep your eyes on your email box and get ready for details!

FUNDRAISING GOAL AND JERSEY LEVEL AWARDS Thank you for the amazing work you have done so far. Please know that your efforts are doing incredible things for the cancer community, locally and abroad. Keep up the great work! We still have a long way to go to reach that $400,000 goal! If you missed the July 1st Jersey Level cutoff, don't worry. You can still qualify for all Jersey level awards all the way up to July 21st, and up to August 4th to qualify for the top 3 fundraisers ("Podium Fundraisers") and top fundraising team ("Team Prize" recipients)! The top fundraiser will also receive the highly coveted Booty Cup trophy and a 2005 TREK Madone Bicycle to be presented just prior to the start of the Bank of America Criterium!

Wondering where to mail offline donations or to whom your donors should write their checks? Can't remember the fundraising level details? Starting your fundraising now and need a quick sample solicitation letter to plug in to your emails? All these questions and more can be answered at our fundraising webpage.

It's not too late to register for the 24 Hours of Booty, as an individual or as a team. The registration deadline is July 21. There will be no registrations accepted after this date, so go ahead and sign up now!

If you wish to do some training for 24 Hours of Booty, you'll want to follow a plan that best represents your goals, ability level, and willingness to train. Per4mance Training US Cycling Elite Coach, Chad Andrews, has developed a training plan that can assist you in reaching goals of 4, 8, 16, or 24 hours of riding at the 24 Hours of Booty. There is a link to his plan on our F.A.Q. page: Remember, you are not required to have any particular goals for 24 Hours of Booty; you can just come out and ride for fun and join the excitement!

We've got some exciting things planned for this year's event. In the next few weeks, we'll be giving you some details about music, food, vendors, and noteworthy appearances from special folks, including a special visitor from the Lance Armstrong Foundation!

We have received many kind offers to volunteer. Thank you! For folks who have already emailed us, we'll be sending you important information very shortly. If you would like to volunteer at 24 Hours of Booty, please send an email to: All volunteers will receive a very cool 24 Hours of Booty t-shirt!

Thank you for all your support of 24 Hours of Booty!
