The Extra Mile - The Official Charity Miles Podcast

Sep 30, 2021

You might remember Bill Bucklew from our 2018 interview when he walked across the United States for Parkinson's Disease, which Bill has.

In today's interview, we join Bill on his latest journey, something he's calling The Long Walk for Parkinson's: 640 miles, over 17 days, 40 miles per day, from the northern tip of Scotland to London... where he'll then run the London Marathon.

For this journey, Bill is not alone.  He's joined by John MacPhee, who also has Parkinson's and has a slate of his own incredible accomplishments, including a previous walk across the U.K.

The two of them are representing the U.S. and the U.K. coming together in a collaboration to help people living with Parkinson's live their best lives.

Appropriately, they're also raising money for Parkinson's organizations in both countries, including The Michael J. Fox Foundation, Parkinson's U.K. and Cure Parkinson's U.K..  

Big thanks to Bill (and John) for continuing to inspire and for sharing part of this journey with us!
