Morton is often quoted stating...
“My uncle died of cancer, and ever since, I’ve been aware, and I wasn’t before,” he said. “People struggling with cancer need support. They come to events like this, and they have some hope.”
Since then, Bill Morton's entire family has been raising funds and attending the Walk N Roll series of annual events. Joining Bill this year was his father, Bill Morton of Bill's Digital Photos and brother, Anthony Michael Morton of Short Fuse Graphics and Design. Olympian Jackie Joyner-Kersee, was the Keynote speaker and Master of Ceremonies for the Walk/Roll event.
The organization raised $786,342.12 in donations for the purpose of "eliminating cancer as a major health problem by preventing cancer, saving lives, and diminishing suffering from cancer, through research, education, advocacy, and service".
