Claire's Story and Organization: 24 Hours of Booty
Description: Claire Cullipher, 41, is the picture perfect model of health. She’s a spin instructor, yoga teacher, mom to a teenage son, high fashion model, and she also recently underwent radiation therapy to treat a brain tumor.
Despite all Claire juggles in life, she always makes time for 24 Hours of Booty, an organization dear to her heart that raises funds for cancer care through a 24-hour cycling event held every July in Charlotte. And even though this year she was undergoing treatment for a brain tumor, Claire still showed up to ride – with her signature pigtails and all. 2016 marked Claire’s 11th 24 Hours of Booty ride. But this year was different for Claire – she was in the middle of radiation treatment for a brain tumor.
