Update: Team Fox Summit Mt. Kilimanjaro Expedition

Email from a friend:

A significant milestone has been reached – $3,000 has been donated in support of my effort as part of the Team Fox for Parkinson’s Research Mt. Kilimanjaro Expedition in August. Many thanks to those who have given. However, I have some ground to cover in order to reach the goal of $10,000 by October 1st deadline. Please consider donating (any amount is very appreciated). Also, please share the info below with your friends on Facebook, Twitter, e-mail or in person. Help me do my part to find the cure for Parkinson’s. The link below is for my story about my personal fight against PD / online donation page:

About Capers Bar

I am retired Army officer. I used to fly helicopters and airplanes while I was in the Army. Nowadays, I do other things that are not so cool and sexy. I decided to write about my journey or whatever you want to call it towards running a half-marathon this fall. I have been running since 1983, I have run the Duke City full and half marathons. I don't run that fast anymore, I did win a 10K when I was 21, those days are mercifully past me. The fastest mile I have turned is a 5:05 during one of those Army physical fitness test 2 mile runs. The point I am making is that I am old, slow, and experienced runner. I named the blog after my running buddy, Bandit, an Australian Blue Heeler. He is my 3rd K-9 running buddy, the previous two dogs were black labs. I hope to write about some of my discussions that I have with Bandit in the future. I once owned, but since sold and a satirical and irreverent sports blog that was moderately successful. I was published in the left-wing national sports media by Sports Illustrated and ESPN. I am "stuck" in Alabama working for a military contractor. I am working so fricking hard to get back to Southeast New Mexico or West Texas. Fingers and toes crossed.
