Retired Greensboro firefighter walking to Duke to support child battling cancer

Firefighters Walking 50 Miles In Full Gear To Support Child Battling Cancer


GREENSBORO, N.C. -- For firefighters, serving others is part of the job.

But a recently retired Greensboro fire captain is going above and beyond to help a fellow firefighter and his son, who is battling stage four cancer.

Capt. Tim Gibbs is walking from Fire Station No. 7 on East Wendover Avenue in Greensboro to Durham.

Gibbs is walking to Duke Medical Center because that's where 8-year-old Morgan Nolen is currently receiving stem cell treatment.

Gibbs hopes his walk will raise awareness for a fundraiser event happening in October.

The event is sponsored by the Professional Fire Fighters of Greensboro Local 947 and Ignite the Spirit.
