Register for 24 Foundation charity bike event

The 24 Foundation, which aims to inspire and engage communities to make an impact on the lives of people affected by cancer, will host a 24-hour cycling event on the Homewood campus on Saturday, Sept. 23, to benefit the LIVESTRONG Foundation and other local organizations.

The event begins at 2 p.m. on Saturday and continues until 2 p.m. Sunday.

This marks the 10th year of 24 Baltimore and the first time the event comes to Homewood. For 24 hours, participants can ride or walk Johns Hopkins University's campus and enjoy camping, live entertainment, catered meals, and much more. All event proceeds support cancer navigation and survivorship services.

A map of the bike course around the perimeter of campus is available online. The event will prompt some road closures around campus, and volunteers, Baltimore City Police officers, and campus security will be stationed at major intersections and access points around the course to facilitate the flow of traffic on and off campus.

To register, visit the 24 Foundation's website. Student registration is $45 plus $100 fundraising minimum; non-student registration is $45 plus a $200 fundraising minimum.
