Chris is also very active within the community through his support of the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS), this year participating in a fundraising contest for Man and Woman of the Year.

“Everyone I know has been touched by cancer,” said Chris. “Everyone. Not one person I know doesn’t have a connection to a friend lost or saved, a family member missed or still cherished after a bout with cancer. It is my goal to raise $400,000 for LLS to provide more research opportunities for blood cancer and hopefully help steal back those moments of love and connection for so many someone’s.”   

In Chris’s spare time, he loves racing, fitness, rebuilding cars, and cooking.  He has been married to Michelle Bolio for almost 18 years, and they share two boys, Luke and Ben, both age 8.
