Team Billy and the Brain Tumor Research Walk and Ride

Today our annual event in Saratoga. We joined the Team Billy Walk for the Brain Tumor Society--a fun and fund raiser for brain tumor research. Always a great walk for a great cause and with good friends. And then the rest of our May tradition--bagels at Uncommon Ground-- then racing to Lyrical Ballad--the best used and collectible bookstore ever.

We come home satisfied that we exercised, gave to charity, found new books, and justified making Thai food for dinner.

But I also come home moved by the back story of today's walk. Ken and Sherri Grey's son Billy died of his brain tumor. Their grief became a cause and they allow their pain to become service to others.
