Company News A M King Helps Change the Course of Cancer
Jul 31, 2017
Charlotte, NC—Team A M King participated in the 24 Foundation’s 16th Annual 24 Hours of Booty community cycling event to benefit cancer survivorship and patient programs. Twenty-eight company employees, relatives, friends and clients joined the more than 1,400 riders from 24 states on the rain-soaked Booty Loop, a 3-mile course through Myers Park.
“It’s a great opportunity to do something I enjoy, and I can help others make the leap from standing on the sidelines to being part of the event,” says John Koury, a 4-year Booty veteran who provides architectural consulting services for A M King. “Many lives at A M King have been touched by cancer and this gives them a chance to physically share their support with each other and within the greater community, likely in a way uncommon to them.”
One of our youngest riders, Connor Miller, 11-year old son of A M King Director of Business Development Jon Miller, said,” It’s so cool that the people at my dad’s office get together outside of work to help others.”
The record-breaking event raised more than $1.7 million that will aid cancer survivors, patients and their families. Beneficiaries include Carolina Healthcare System’s Levine Cancer Institute, Levine Children’s Hospital, the Keep Pounding Foundation, Queens University, Wind River Cancer Wellness Retreats and the Livestrong Foundation.
