Retired Trooper with Parkinson's Goes Above and Beyond to Raise Awareness

Tommy Dellinger planned his walk to raise awareness for Parkinson's

Tommy Dellinger heard about another person who walked across the country to raise awareness for a cause, and he decided to follow this example. His family was a bit skeptical about his plans, but they understood his need to do something about his condition and eventually went along with Tommy’s dream.

Tommy trained for weeks, planned his route and walked around the neighborhood carrying a 30-pound bag, which simulated the backpack Officer Dellinger would carry on his trek.
