Why Is Chad Walking?
In 2006 at age 38, Chad’s wife Sheila was diagnosed with stage III colorectal cancer.
She fought with tenacity and now lives cancer-free!
In 2013, the couple attended their first Call-on Congress and became dedicated advocates for the cause.
In becoming an advocate, Chad and Sheila both developed a passion for raising awareness about prevention. They’re making sure people are aware that screening saves lives!!
Seven years ago, Chad had the idea of walking across the country. He planned, trained and prepared – lining up organizations like FedEx and Fight CRC to support him.
On his 50th birthday on May 6, 2018, Chad kicked off his walk from Arlington Cemetery in Virginia.
He’s hit the streets to save lives and support fellow veterans like himself and cancer survivors like Sheila.
He’s out to make a difference and impact lives. And by the looks of it, he’s off to a great start!Read more about the story! Check out the Blog!
