Packers President/CEO Mark Murphy today teamed up with the American Cancer Society and joined CEOs around the country for the one-day Fit2Be Cancer Free CEOs Challenge.
Aimed at recognizing that the business sector is uniquely positioned to lead the fight against cancer, the event challenges business leaders to track their steps at work on April 27 and inspire their colleagues and community to get active in the fight against cancer.
"I recognize that as the leader the Packers, I have a unique and powerful platform to demonstrate our commitment to ending cancer and supporting those who have faced the disease," said Murphy. "Though Fit2Be Cancer Free falls on the first day of the NFL Draft this year, I felt it was important to take part to remind our fans that even on our busiest days, it's critical for our long-term physical and mental health to make time for activity and take care of ourselves."

Murphy is one of more than 500 members of the American Cancer Society's CEOs Against Cancer program, representing a powerful network of prominent business leaders who bring the passion, expertise and resources needed to prevent, treat and cure cancer.
In recent years, Murphy and the Packers have enhanced the team's efforts to fight cancer through the Packers Vs. Cancer initiative, which raises awareness of all cancers, raises funds for research and cancer care and reminds fans that early screenings save lives. For more information about Packers Vs.
