Team Billy Ride

  • Saratoga Farmers Market 11-77 High Rock Ave Saratoga Springs, NY, 12866 United States (map)


I rode for my son, Billy, who is twelve years old.  In November 1999, he had emergency surgery to remove a brain tumor.  Since then, he has endured radiation and chemotherapy. 

He has continued to go to school.  Billy is a hero to many people.

This year, his school, the Albany Academies, honored him with the Simmons Award which exemplifies the outstanding qualities of an A student.

Billy is an inspiration to everyone whose life he touches.

- Ken Grey, The Brain Tumor Society Newsletter, 2000

Ken Grey began fundraising through cycling in 2000, participating in the Brain Tumor Society’s Ride for Research in the Boston area.  With the assistance and direction of his associates at Marshall & Sterling, Ken established fundraising efforts, which have grown over the years.

In 2005, with the help of friends, Ken and Cherie Grey brought the event to Saratoga Springs and is now known as the Team Billy Ride and Walk for Research.
