Booty ride honors Queens University student

24 Hours of Booty event founder Spencer Lueders (right) and his wife Susan Lueders (left), recently awarded Queens University of Charlotte student Chris Vilela with the “Spencer and Susan Lueders 24 Hours of Booty Scholarship.”

The award is granted in honor of the Lueder family for their legacy in starting 24 Hours of Booty, a 24-hour-long charity cycling event to fight cancer and raise money for cancer research.

The scholarship is awarded to a student at Queens who has been impacted by cancer directly or in their immediate family.

24 Hours of Booty will donate $40,000 to the scholarship fund over four years as a continuation of the organization’s 10th Anniversary Celebration in 2011.
