Will you please support me in the Walk to End Alzheimer's?

On October 8th, I will be taking part in the Nashville Walk to End Alzheimer's. Would you please sponsor me? A contribution of any size will be appreciated. Can you contribute $5 or $10? If you will click on the link below, it will take you to my donation page.  Once on that page, just put in the amount you want to contribute and then it takes you to another page where you can submit your credit card information. This is a secure site administered by the Alzheimer Association. Here is the link.


Alzheimer's is not a normal part of aging. Alzheimer's disease is a progressive brain disorder that damages and eventually destroys brain cells, leading to loss of memory, thinking and other brain functions. Alzheimer's usually develops slowly and gradually gets worse as more brain cells wither and die. Ultimately, Alzheimer's is fatal, and currently, there is no cure. Unless a cure is found, you or one you love may develop this disease. Currently, more than 5 million Americans have Alzheimer's and that number is expected to grow to as many as 16 million by 2050. Our future is at risk unless we can find a way to change the course of this disease.

My life has been touched by this disease because my wife and the love of my life suffers from it.  I need your support to do my part! Please make a donation to help the Alzheimer's Association advance research into prevention, treatments and a cure for Alzheimer’s.

We will be walking a mile and a half in Centennial Park on October 8. If you are in Nashville, Please join me.  Sign-in is at 9:30AM and the walk begins at 10:30AM. Please donate now by clicking the above link.

Thank you.
Rod Williams
