Bill Walker of Greenville and the Greenville High School cheerleaders recently teamed up to raise money for the Lemuel Rhodes Cancer Foundation.
The challenge . . . Walker would perform a cheer if at least $1,000 were raised for the foundation.
The goal was quickly surpassed and Walker knew needed to prepare for the big day. He said the community came through like it always does and helped a great cause during a time when they were having trouble raising money.
