Back in August of 2012, former NBA player Brian Grant (who has Parkinson’s disease) and a group of individuals with Parkinson’s disease decided to make a trek up Mount Saint Helens.
The journey was featured in a YouTube video called “Power Forward” which can be seen below:
Earlier today, Grant’s foundation was awarded for the video at the first annual World Parkinson Congress 2013 Video Competition and below is the text from the Brian Grant’s Foundation Facebook page about the win:
Incredibly honored to be awarded 1st place for the World Parkinson Congress 2013 Video Competition. We won for our video that captured Brian and 5 others with Parkinson’s disease climbing Mt. St. Helens (8,365 ft.).
