Radford Student Starts Charity Run for Cancer

A member of the Radford University Foundation Athletics Board, George Abie Williams is a financial advisor and has been named as one of the top 50 advisors in Virginia. A father and an avid sports fan, George Abie Williams is a regular contributor to various athletic and charitable organizations in Radford, Virginia.

A Radford University student named Alyce Baker recently started a fundraiser called “Run for Ron,” after finding out that her father had terminal lung cancer. Cancer is currently one of the most commonly diagnosed terminal illnesses in the United States, and the Baker family is just one of many affected by the disease every day.

For Alyce, the fundraiser is an ongoing class project in which more than 60 individuals have already participated. It has not only helped the Baker family through a difficult time, but has also given Ron Baker, a historically private individual, the chance to share with others. “Run for Ron” is a perfect illustration of not only the positive impact a single individual can have, but also of the power of community.
