We are hiking! With about half the team assembled in Cortina we did our first acclimatization hike to a spectacular refugio overlooking the whole valley. Today we all got a look at just how powerful these mountains are. The trek officially starts with a welcome dinner tomorrow, then our 8-day adventure begins.
The magic of this trek is being with the people with Parkinson's. Digging deep and pushing through whatever Parkinson's disease can throw at them, this group epitomizes grit, determination, and a desire to accomplish something incredible.
This trek is a fundraiser for the Parkinson's Association of San Diego so. If you are so inclined, feel free to click here or on the link below to donate on behalf of one of the hikers. All the donations stay within the San Diego Parkinson's community...all the expenses for this trek were paid by the individual hikers.
Thanks for listening and we look forward to sharing this trek to Italy's Dolomite Mountains through these short podcasts.
