Race for Hope, DC - May 7, 2017

TEAM WINKY (David, Skye and Norah) are participating in the Race for Hope DC for the 9th year in a row. We do this in memory of my dad, William "Winky" Bennett.  Winky passed away on August 3, 2007 of a very agressive brain tumor called a Glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) brain tumor. He was only 67 years old and was in terrific shape. He loved to ride his bike on the BWI and B&A Trail. If you ever saw him on the trail, I guarantee you could not keep up with him. He would have definitely been leading the pack.

You are probably reading this message because you have donated in the past. We ask that you please consider continuing to donate to this very important cause. It means so much to our family and helps to raise funds and awareness for battling brain tumors. Cancer sucks. Please consider a donation.

Thank you for your support in helping us find a cure for brain tumors!

This is an inspiring song about cancer and it makes me think of my Daddy. It was written by Zach Sobiech, a victim of a deadly form of cancer, who died in 2013 at the age of 18.  You should listen to this song...

"Clouds"

I fell down, down, down
Into this dark and lonely hole
There was no one there to care about me anymore
And I needed a way to climb and grab a hold of the edge
You were sitting there holding a rope

And we'll go up, up, up
But I'll fly a little higher
Go up in the clouds because the view's a little nicer
Up here my dear
It won't be long now, it won't be long now

When we get back on land
Well I'll never get my chance
Be ready to live and it'll be ripped right out of my hands
And maybe someday we'll take a little ride
Go up, up, up and everything will be just fine

We'll go up, up, up
But I'll fly a little higher
Go up in the clouds because the view's a little nicer
Up here my dear

It won't be long now, it won't be long now
If only I had a little bit more time
If only I had a little bit more time with you

We could go up, up, up
And take that little ride
We'll sit there holding hands
And everything would be just right
And maybe someday I'll see you again
We'll float up in the clouds and we'll never see the end

We'll go up, up, up
But I'll fly a little higher
Go up in the clouds because the view's a little nicer
Up here my dear
It won't be long now, it won't be long now
