What started as a small idea to help those he knew battling cancer turned into a hugely successful fundraising campaign for ECU Health Cancer Care.  Greg Parker not only wanted to raise money for cancer care, but he also wanted to raise awareness while making an impact.  And he did just that!  For 24 hours, Greg committed to walking on the treadmill in order to honor those he knew personally affected by cancer as well as the countless others in our community in similar situations.  He invited friends, family, colleagues, and community notables to participate by walking beside him on adjoining treadmills for 15- minute increments in exchange for donations.  ECU baseball coach Cliff Godwin and new Greenville Fire- Rescue Chief Carson Sanders also logged miles on the treadmill. Additionally, A Good Long Walk was recognized all over the country thanks to the promotion it received on the nationally syndicated Bobby Bones Show.  A huge thanks to Greg Parker and Champions Fitness, host of the event, for providing HOPE for the patients and families of eastern North Carolina.  Over $25,000 was raised for ECU Health Cancer Care in a single 24-hour period!
