coincidence no way!

coincidence no way!

In a cool morning in Colorado at the trail head at MT Bierstadt my son in law and i climbed the 14000ft summit and 10 minutes after reaching the top I met a man named Roger Long it was both of our first time on a 14 er and both of us have Parkinson's, coincidence NO WAY God put us on this mt to not only bring awareness in our own circles but we were talking on top of this MT in the middle of all these people about PD and our faith and both journeys it was awesome an this week Roger is climbing MT Kilimanjaro with Team Fox to not only raise awareness but money for research at longwayup.org so if you would can donate roger is still short and could use your support keep the faith and look up roger should be some great pics.

What a wonderful achievement. And also to meet someone who also had Parkinsons. I consider myself to be reasonably fit, but could not tackle anything along these lines. I do admire you both so much.
