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 16th 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.




We would like to invite all participants to recognize those special people who have been touched by melanoma.  Back signs will be provided for you to wear.  Feel free to embellish your sign(s) with photos, poems or special words.



Every hour of every day of the year, someone dies of melanoma. It is the most common form of cancer in the United States. More than 3.5 million skin cancers in more than 2 million people are diagnosed annually with approximately 5700deaths in men and 3000 in women. Over the past 31 years, more people have had skin cancer than all other cancers combined. Melanoma strikes people of all ages, races, all economic levels and both sexes. While melanoma is the most deadly form of skin cancer, it is also highly preventable and treatable if caught early. Sadly, there is no cure for this aggressive disease. We invite you to join us in our quest for a melanoma cure by making a donation to the Bill Walter III Melanoma Research Fund. You can make a difference. All donations are tax deductible and no amount is too small. Please accept our gratitude.
