Steve Gilbert

Steve Gilbert was first diagnosed with Parkinson’s in 2004 at age 59. Since then, he has achieved a level of fitness he never thought possible. He celebrates what he calls his “small victories”, by which means such things as hiking the Inca Trail, running in the Masters 800m at the Drake Relays, and running his first marathon at age 66. He is now sixteen years post-diagnosis and reports that his movement and balance are not compromised to a great degree and that his thinking is still relatively clear.
