Over the EdgeCharles Walker



My name is Charles Walker and I'm from Louisville, Kentucky. I graduated from St. Xavier High School in 2014 and the University of Kentucky in 2018. While at Kentucky I dual-majored in Finance and Marketing while also playing football for the Cats. After school, I like to say I had a "short stint" in the NFL, earning a spot at the Detroit Lions rookie mini camp. It turns out I was a more suitable insurance agent than I was an NFL wide receiver. I now work with my father as a property and casualty insurance agent specializing in the transportation, manufacturing, and construction industry. 

I'm participating in the "Over The Edge" event to raise money towards Gilda's Club never-ending mission; At Gilda’s Club Kentuckiana our mission is to ensure those impacted by cancer are empowered by knowledge, strengthened by action and sustained by community.We are dedicated to creating a support system unlike any other.

Many of my friends, family, peers, and loved ones are affected by cancer. I am raising money to "fight the good fight" against cancer diagnosis and all the struggles that come with it. 

Thank you for taking the time to read this as well as considering a donation!

    I am donating to Gilda's on behalf of Austin Chambers who graduated from St. X and played basketball with Charles. More importantly, on behalf of Austin's grandfather who lost his battle to cancer. Gilda's helped him a lot during his battle. Gilda's is still helping me. Charles, you have chosen a GREAT organization.

    I am donating in honor of two very special people, Joann Shumate and Shelby Hilton????????. Both of these women fought the fight but unfortunately did not win the battle. My hope is that one day there will be a cure for this awful disease.
