Come August of this year, one of the alumni of the class of 1984 of Roane County High School will be a member of a team of 20 or so climbers who will scale Africa’s tallest mountain, Mt. Kilimanjaro.
This climber will be Roger Long, and the climbing group will be the Team Fox Kilimanjaro Expedition, organized by Michael J. Fox on behalf of The Michael J. Fox Foundation, which is an organization founded by Fox to aid in the fight against Parkinson’s Disease, from which both Roger Long and Michael J. Fox suffer.
