Bill Bucklew of Wilmette, IL can’t run anymore, but he still can walk.

He was diagnosed with early onset Parkinson’s disease in 2012 at age 43, however, symptoms started long before and went improperly diagnosed for 7 years. Determined to find a cure for the disease, to inspire those affected by it and help educate those who aren’t, Bill will attempt to walk 2 marathons a day, across the United States, walking and talking with people each day that have been affected by Parkinson's.

Bill has been involved in helping find a cure for Parkinson’s staring immediately after his diagnosis, completing fundraising events such
as the Ironman Triathlon, climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro, Olympic distance Triathlons and running numerous Marathons.
On November 24, 2017, despite his challenges, Bill will attempt to cross the United States on foot (2,500 miles) to help elevate
awareness and research for Parkinson’s disease. His journey will begin in Tybee Island, GA and if he finishes, will conclude in 2018, in
San Diego, CA. Walking against the wind, Bill intends to highlight one individual each day of this adventure, who has been affected by
Parkinson’s disease.
Parkinson’s disease is a highly misunderstood disease and affects individuals differently. Bill’s father was diagnosed with Parkinson’s in
2015 and several of Bill’s family members and other close friends have also been directly impacted by the disease. Bill hopes to realize
his dream of touching the lives of many affected by this complex disease, but needs your help.
The primary beneficiary of the fundraising will be: The Michael J Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research & Team Fox
The Michael J. Fox Foundation is dedicated to finding a cure for Parkinson’s disease through an aggressively funded research
agenda and to ensuring the development of improved therapies for those living with Parkinson’s today
Team Fox is the grassroots community fundraising program at The Michael J. Fox Foundation. Each year, thousands of Team
Fox members worldwide turn their passions and interests into unique fundraising events and athletic feats.
