- Fundraiser initiated by Bettina Chavanne, who has Young Onset Parkinson's Disease. When she signed up for the Gold's Gym Endurance Challenge, the right side of her body moved constantly from the tremors. Her current trainer, Brian Samson, created a unique and arduous training regimen that helped her regain control of her muscle movement and build strength.
