Avery Williamson Giving Back in a Big Way


Current Tennessee Titan and Former Kentucky Wildcat Avery Williamson is back in the bluegrass and giving back to someone who has given her time to help so many. Williamson will be doing a FREE Public Signing at AllSports (Fayette Mall) this Friday from 6-7pm.

Williamson is encouraging those who come out to donate towards Sarah Warner Lister’s battle with Acute Myeloid Leukemia. 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 Stoops at Kentucky was an All-SEC Selection and was chosen by the Tennessee Titans in the 2014 NFL Draft. “I love Kentucky and anytime 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.” 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.

In addition to signing for donations, Avery is giving away two free tickets to a 2016 Tennessee Titans home football game.  For a chance to win please bring a donation of any amount to the free public signing.

If you can’t make it out, here is how you can participate from home:

  1.  Visit Sarah Warner’s donation page
  2.  Select a donation amount of your choice
  3.  Input your name
  4.  Input #TeamAveryin the “Comments, In Memory, Tribute” section

    It is a cold, slushy day here in Connecticut, and I’ve been beside myself with worry about my sister, Sarah, being treated for leukemia in the Markey Cancer Center in Lexington. Suddenly, I started noticing donations coming in with the hashtag #TeamAvery. Stunned and surprised, I found the website that Avery Williamson has decided to celebrate and help my wonderful sister, who for ten years has been helping families in need as the Executive Director of the Ronald McDonald House in Lexington. THANK YOU, Mr. Williamson, for this incredibly kind and generous effort – you have a heart of gold. And thank you to all of you kind folks who are part of #TeamAvery. All of us with #TeamSarah thank you!
