Chalk Your Walk for Craig campaign on the Range

Every morning, radio DJ Craig Holgate greets his listeners on WTBX. They know about his five and a half year battle with cancer.

And just recently, two of them started a Facebook campaign called 'Chalk Your Walk for Craig.' 

People are encouraged to write messages to Craig on your sidewalk or driveway, and then post pictures of them on the page.

Holgate said he was very surprised, and humbled. "A lot of people jumped on board, even down in the St. Cloud area. It's been very fun to watch. People are very creative."

He added, "To me, my listeners are my radio family. Despite all of the things I've been going through, I come to work almost every day, because coming in and getting them ready for their day, is kind of like therapy for me."

The rain may have washed away some of the recent messages, but it's likely more will pop up soon. He's done over 100 rounds of chemotherapy, and keeps on fighting.
