Two local restaurants next week will help two cycling teams raise money for their rides in Charlotte’s ’24 Hours of Booty,’ which benefits cancer research. On Monday, Char-Grill will host “12 Hours of Burgers” on behalf of a team from Davidson’s Moliver Chiropractic. Then on Wednesday, Campania Cafe´donates 10 percent of its sales to Ingersoll-Rand’s team in the ride. The Charlotte 24 Hours of Booty ride begins next Friday, July 29, at 7 p.m., based at Queens University. 24 Hours of Booty, which follows a route in and around Myers Park, is an official cycling event of Lance Armstrong’s Livestrong Foundation. More than 1,200 riders are expected to raise about $1 million for Livestrong and Charlotte’s Levine Cancer Institute.
CHAR-GRILL’S ’12 HOURS OF BURGERS’
On Monday, July 25, from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m., Char-grill Davidson will host “12 Hours of Burgers” as they team up with Dr. Seth Moliver of Moliver Chiropractic. The restaurant in Davidson Commons (the Harris Teeter shopping center) will donate 10 percent of the day’s sales to Team Camden, as the team rides in 24 Hours of Booty.
Team Camden was created in memory of Camden Rush Kibler, who lost his fight with cancer at the very young age of 5 months. For more information about Camden, visit www.camdensjourney.com. Dr. Moliver will be riding 160 miles, each mile representing one day that Camden lived.
Visit CHAR-GRILL on July 25th to support this important event and join the fight against cancer. Moliver Chiropractic and CHAR-GRILL Davidson are located in Davidson Commons at 624 Jetton Street, Davidson, NC.

Davidson resident George Berger says he’s riding “in honor of a number of family members, including my dad, my mother-in-law, and my cousin, as well as others I love” who have had cancer.
