Next weekend, Hudson, Wis. attorney Mark Gherty will ski his 24th American Birkebeiner and his fourth for Team Fox, a charitable organization that raises money for research into Parkinson's disease, which afflicts Gherty's sister.
“She’s always been one of my biggest cheerleaders. She’s the one I call after the race and let her know how it went,” Gherty, 59, told the Pierce County Herald. “As long as I can keep skiing, I’ll ski for (her)."
