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 7 and inspire their colleagues and community to get active in the fight against cancer.
"All of us have been impacted by cancer, whether it's been a family member, friend or coworker," said Murphy. "The Green Bay Packers have been committed to combating cancer in our communities in a number of ways through the years, and I'm honored to take part in the Fit2Be Cancer Free CEO Challenge. Personal fitness is a very effective tool in cancer prevention and through this competition we hope to bring greater awareness to the lifestyles choices we all can make in the effort."

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.
