In Memory of Bill Bill Walter III was a resident of Ormond Beach, a graduate of Spruce Creek High School, husband, father and an athlete who enjoyed many sports. In January 1995 Bill was diagnosed with level 5 melanoma. In August 1998 friends, family and classmates rallied together to bring the first annual Bill Walter III Melanoma 5K to Ormond Beach with Bill and his family there. Three months later Bill lost his battle with this dreaded disease. The battle continues as Bill’s positive spirit lives on in the hearts of those who are trying to help find a cure for melanoma. The 17th annual run, RayZ Awareness, will take place on the beach at the Granada Beach approach. Walkers and walking groups are welcome. Donations are gratefully accepted. The money raised during this event will be used to help fund melanoma research, assist patients in need of financial support and to increase melanoma awareness.
