The Long Way Up

Climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro with Team Fox to help find the cure for Parkinson’s disease

When I started on the path to Kilimanjaro more than 7 months ago, I committed to a fundraising goal with no idea how or if it could be reached.  During so many hikes, so many miles, I would often wondered about reaching the goal and who would commit to helping find the cure for Parkinson’s.  One of the things I re-learned through this whole experience is that none of us are ever alone.  No matter what path we choose, there are always those who walk with us.  Ten of us made the trek on behalf of Team Fox, but hundreds of people were with us every step of the way and we reached the summit of the world’s tallest freestanding mountain.

Today, my fundraising goal was met and exceeded:  $10,000+ has been donated to fund research to find the cure for Parkinson’s disease.  It may have been my goal, but it became a reality because so many people chose to give of themselves – to pay it forward.  I am forever changed by the experience.  Thank you.
