A former Roane County man hasn’t let Parkinson’s disease slow him down.
In August, he plans to climb Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania with Team Fox of the Michael J. Fox Foundation.
Roger Long said his main focus is raising money for the foundation started by Fox, the actor known for the starring role in the movie Back to the Future,
Fox also suffers from Parkinson’s disease.
Long wants to show others how the disease can be largely overcome.
