Since the "Twist," Checker created such popular moves as "The Fly" and "The Pony," which today is known as "Hip Hop." For the past five decades, Checker has continued to make an impact on the music world and today is featured at #30 on the charts with his new CD, "Knock Down the Walls."

The Walk raised funds for cancer care at the UMass Memorial Cancer Center and cancer research at the University of Massachusetts Medical School. The walk has now raised more than $4 million to support cancer research at the Medical School and cancer care at UMass Memorial.
