Parker Boats announces it will be sponsoring “Journey for a Cause”, where Grace College student Eddie Gill II will highlight inclusion and fishing through a 10-day boating trip.

Gill will make the journey from the Ohio River in Indiana to the Gulf of Mexico in a Parker 2520 XLD boat. “Journey for a Cause” was inspired by Gill’s dream to promote diversity within the boating and fishing communities after he realized many are not involved. Eddie wants to help the industry expand with those who enjoy being on the water.

Eddie Gill stated, “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. It will be an honor to take this journey on a Parker Boat and I’m looking forward to a great adventure!”

Bauer added, “Parker Boats is experiencing significant growth and we are happy to use our platform to support worthy causes both in our industry and local community. We are working hard at Making Life Better.”

The 2520 XLD sport cabin allows protection from the sun, rain, heat and cold. The standard opening windows, lockable cabin door, upholstered seating combined with nimble handling sets the cabin models apart. The superior fabrication blended with optional features such as Garmin electronics, second station, and rocket launchers for strength, simplicity, and seaworthiness.
