My team met together in the hotel lobby and we walked together to the Moscone center, the site of the inspiration dinner. In true TNT fashion, event participants enter the venue in a "red carpet" welcome. All of our staff people, coaches, family and fans line the walk way to cheer, scream, howl, blow whistles and bang tambourines in what we call the "heros parade". This moment always overwhelms me. I am uncomfortable being called a "hero", although to the people we help, I guess we may be.

The president of the LLS in Canada also talked to us. She told us about some really important research programs the LLS is funding. There is a drug that is so promising, a big name drug manufacturer is going to spend a billion dollars to fast track it's FDA approval. Wow! A few million raised by US turns into a BILLION dollar drug that could lead to a CURE. Simply amazing!
