For the past 10 years Sarah has been the Executive Director of Lexington’s Ronald McDonald House, providing comfort and hope to thousands of families from around the world while their children are hospitalized. Sarah’s beautiful smile and always positive personality is contagious to anyone who meets her. Many of Sarah’s supporters have started wearing Orange Ribbons to help raise Leukemia Awareness as well as promoting the hashtag #TeamSarah.
Williamson who played under coach Mark Stoops at Kentucky was an All-SEC Selection and was chosen by the Tennessee Titans in the 2014 NFL Draft.
“I love Kentucky and any time I’m back I love meeting members of the BBN. After hearing about Sarah’s battle and how much she has done for so many others I thought it would be a great idea to rally the BBN for a great cause,” Williams said.
Williamson recorded 102 tackles, 3.5 sacks and an interception for the Titans this season. See below for more information about Sarah’s fight and how you can help donate.
