The breakfast provides a comfortable opportunity for people of all levels of faith to hear successful leaders give testimony to the power of faith and prayer in their lives. Organized by volunteers, the breakfast is in its fifteenth year. Attendees who come primarily from the business, medical and educational communities of Silicon Valley are anticipated to total nearly 400 people. This year's keynote speakers will be Col. Rex J. Walheim, NASA Astronaut, and Cheryl Ho, MD, Medical Director, Valley Homeless Healthcare Program. Both will speak on "The Joy of Serving".

Col. Walheim has completed two space flights with his most recent in February 2008. On that mission, Rex and the crew visited the International Space Station, traveled over 5 million miles in 203 orbits, and took three space walks. His previous mission in 2002 marked the first time the station's robotic arm was used to maneuver spacewalkers around the station. Rex is a Bay Area native, calling San Carlos his hometown. He graduated from San Carlos High School and received a BS degree in mechanical engineering from the University of California, Berkeley. He was commissioned in the Air Force and earned an MS degree in industrial engineering from the University of Houston. Rex is married and has two children.

As director of the program, Cheryl considers it a privilege and honor to serve the most vulnerable members of the Silicon Valley every day.

Cheryl is also a clinical instructor at the Stanford School of Medicine. She is married, received her undergraduate degree from Stanford and her M.D. from UC San Diego.
