Team Billy Ride and Walk for Research 2012

Last Sunday, May 20th, on a fantastically sunny day, close to 600 people came out to support The Team Billy Ride and Walk for Research. The Team Billy event raises funds for brain tumor research and the Billy Grey Research Chair is administered through the National Brain Tumor Society and has been successful in funding over $1,000,000 in grants. 

Four events were held, a 3 mile walk, 50 mile, 25 mile and 10 mile bike ride, and the day raised more than than Team Billy's goal of $75,000. (*A computer registration process wasn't involved, so the exact number will not be in for a couple more weeks).

The organization is still accepted donations at Team Billy: 38 Fifth Avenue, Saratoga Springs, NY, or to the National Brain Tumor Society, 124 Watertown Rd, Watertown, MA 02472.  

All of the donations and registrations go to funding brain tumor research with over $1.5 million being awarded over the past ten years.
