Crazy Good Turns Featuring Bernie Marcus

BERNIE MARCUS FEATURED ON CRAZY GOOD TURNS PODCAST

November 21, 2017

How far would you go to help one of your coworkers?

For Bernie Marcus, co-founder and former CEO of Home Depot, the answer is: farther than most would imagine. What started as a simple desire to help his personal accountant—whose 4-year-old son had autism—has developed into a 30-year campaign to improve the resources available to kids with autism.

Bernie is featured on this week’s episode of Crazy Good Turns, a podcast dedicated to telling stories about people who do amazing things for others. His passion for giving back to others has led to life-changing work through organizations like the Marcus Autism Center, The Shepherd Center for Brain and Spinal Injuries and the Marcus Trauma Center at Grady Hospital in Atlanta.
