Bill Bucklew of Wilmette, IL can't run well anymore, but he can still walk...
Bill was diagnosed with early onset Parkinson’s disease in 2012 at age 43, however, symptoms existed long before and went improperly diagnosed for 7 years. Determined to find a cure for the disease, inspiring those affected by it and educating those who aren’t, Bill will attempt (and may be the first) to walk 2 marathons a day, every day, across the United States, talking with people that have been affected by Parkinson’s.
