    Travis & Mark Macy on their inspiring father-son Alzheimer's journey & new book 'One Mile At A Time'

In 2019, they made the courageous decision to participate in the World's Toughest Race—a grueling seven-day, 400-mile marathon involving trekking, climbing, biking, and paddling through the jungle—for one final race together.
