"We are both honored and fortunate that Chris has agreed to step into this role, knowing that she will share her passion and determination with all who are involved," said Mike Bond, executive director of Lake Christian Ministries.
"I am delighted to serve as honorary chairman for this memorial walk that honors Jim's work with Lake Christian Ministries as well as the legacy he left for his family, friends and the Smith Mountain Lake community," said Cameron.

He would be so pleased to know that the proceeds from the walk will enable the work that he loved so much to continue."
