Rock Steady Boxing
501 (c)(3) nonprofit Rock Steady Boxing provides hope and improves quality of life for people living with Parkinson’s Disease through a non-contact boxing based fitness curriculum. Recent studies suggest that rhythmic, balance, and core based exercise is neuro-protective, actually slowing the progression of Parkinson’s Disease.
My late grandfather Vern fought a tough battle against Parkinson’s disease, which is what initially pushed me towards Rock Steady. Since then, I've seen firsthand the immense progress, strong community, and hope that Rock Steady provides to its participants. Working with people affected by Parkinson’s was a strong factor in my career change to medicine. I would greatly appreciate any donation towards the cause!
