Parker Boats this summer will sponsor “Journey for a Cause,” during which college student Eddie Gill II will highlight inclusion and fishing through a 10-day boat trip from the Ohio River to the Gulf of Mexico. Gill attends Grace College in Indiana, the state from which he’ll launch the more than 1,000-mile passage in a Parker 2520 XLD.
Journey for a Cause was inspired by Gill’s dream to promote diversity within the boating, fishing and outdoor-adventure communities.
“I am thrilled to partner with Parker Boats on Journey for a Cause. I am incredibly grateful for their sponsorship and have the greatest respect and admiration for their commitment to promoting diversity and inclusion in the boating industry and outdoor sports,” Gill said in a statement.
“We are inspired by Eddie’s passion and desire to encourage others to experience fishing and boating,” Parker president Scott Bauer said in the statement. “Parker Boats is proud to be his ride of choice for this honorable cause.”
