“The Beast” Battles RA & Weight Loss While Racing
Throughout his remarkable weight-loss journey Mark has inspired his family, friends, and fans. Now, he will have the opportunity to inspire a new community of people of those who suffer from arthritis pain. Through all the challenges Mark considers his obstacles as merely bumps in the road as he prepares to take on the challenge of his life this fall.
“You are able to achieve anything that you set your mind to achieve. If you dream it and plan it, you will achieve it. To me, RA is just another obstacle to overcome.”
