Roane Co. man climbs Mt. Kilimanjaro for Parkinson's research

Last month, we told you about a Roane County native who was preparing for the climb of his life.

Roger Long was planning to summit Mount Kilimanjaro this month, raising money for Parkinson's research.

It's a fight for a cure that's personal; at 36, Long was diagnosed with the disease.

We're happy to share with you that Long made it to the top of the highest mountain in Africa!

Mt. Kilimanjaro is 19,341 feet above sea level.

He even brought his Big Orange pride with him.

We want to thank Richard's nephew, Eric Long, for sharing the photo with us.
