Exciting news! William Michael Morgan will perform and be inducted as an "Alz-Star" at the Alzheimer's Tennessee Foothills Walk, Saturday, April 28 at Maryville College. Thank you WIVK 107.7! William Michael Morgan is a rising Country Star whose new album "Vinyl" includes the single "I Know Who He is." The song tells the story of grandson dealing with his grandfather's Alzheimer's disease.
Everyone who has taken a similar journey will identify with the lyric, "He doesn't have to know me 'cause I know who he is."
Listen to his song and see him perform at the Alzheimer's Tennessee Walk.
The Foothills Alzheimer’s Tennessee WALK is filled with Celebration! Participants and volunteers from Blount, Loudon & Monroe counties find live musical entertainment, FREE food, door prizes, and fun for all ages. Even pets are included!

Organize a Team!
Teams are the heart of what makes Alzheimer’s WALK so successful. Families, Friends, Businesses, Churches, Organizations and School Groups build teams to honor those who have been touched by Alzheimer’s.
Team captains and co-captains are the volunteer leaders who build excitement and help teams meet their fundraising goals. They motivate and encourage co-workers, friends and family to join their team and work to promote the Foothills Alzheimer’s Tennessee WALK.
We could use your help on WALK day! We rely on volunteers to help set up, clean up, take photos, plus register, work concessions, and direct WALKers. You'll find the option to volunteer under each WALK registration type.
