CHARLOTTE, N.C. - 24 Hours of Booty kicks off tonight so Wilson stopped by Trysports in SouthPark to see how things were getting geared up for the event.  Charlotte's Myers Park neighborhood welcomes the riders who will take over the Booty Loop for the next 24 hours to raise money for cancer research and survivorship.

Wilson talked with participants in the Booty Loop about why they enjoy being part of the event.  He also found out how the cyclists get their bikes as well as themselves ready for the ride.   Cops for the Cure is only one of the many teams that will be a part of the ride.

Presenting sponsor Levine Cancer Institute is proud to work with 24 Hours of Booty for the 13th annual ride.  The ride kicks off at 7pm tonight and runs through 7pm on Saturday night with over 1,200 riders participating.  So, come out to Bootyville and cheer on these riders!  And if you are driving through the neighborhood...please be aware of the riders.
