Being diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease at the age of 36, has had a profound and life changing effect on Alex. Not only is he a father, he is also an Adventurer, Speaker, Writer and so much more.
Alex’s wish to run, walk and anything else (including crawl) to cover the equivalent distance of 10 million meters (6,214 miles) was achieved by January 2014. However, more is yet to come and Alex will keep moving to raise more than £1 million for Parkinson’s research.
All it took was a cup of coffee to change Alex’s life forever and set in motion the indomitable will and desire that lead him to realise and write his astonishing adventure that Sir Ranulph Fiennes OBE has described as “seriously hard”.
Alex has a unique and uplifting perspective on life, adventure, travel and the world. He has used this as a writer, contributing to magazines and newspapers, and also when speaking and presenting to companies, teams of employees, and industry leaders.
I have and will continue to face some of the toughest challenges on the planet while battling Parkinson’s every second of every day! It’s about making people aware… for without awareness, change will never happen.
To date the media have taken my story around the world, for which I am truly grateful. For more media, click here
