PASD Microcast #65 – Jeff on Running with Alex in the Dolomites

Parkinson's Association's of San Diego Microcast

The 2022 Power Over Parkinson's Dolomite Mountain Trek in Italy is over, but the hikes and events of that week will stay with all of us for a lifetime. I had the most incredible experience hiking for the week with Alex Trepte, one of the four people on the trek with Parkinson's.

Alex has this thing – he runs at the end of every hike. And for someone who occasionally has issues just walking with Parkinson's, this is one of the most powerful things I've ever seen.

I try to put it into words in this short episode, but please click the link below to watch the short, 20-second video of Alex and I running the last few meters of the last hike on the last day.
