In the United States, 50,000-60,000 new cases of Parkinson's disease (PD) are diagnosed each year, adding to the one million people who currently have PD.
Join our team for the local National Parkinson Foundation (NPF) Moving Day® walk, the first nationwide grassroots campaign that spotlights the disease on a national level and gives the chance to raise awareness and fpromote movement in our PD community. Your support will help NPF continue improving the quality of care for those living with Parkinson's disease.... the best part? All of the funds stay right here in the Tampa Bay Area to support local exercise groups, support groups, research, and MORE.
Rock Steady Boxing (RSB) is an exercise program uniquley designed for people with Parkinson's Disease. It is proven by research to be neuro-protective, meaning that it will decrease loss of neurons over time.

Our workouts are tough, but effective. PLUS, it is for ANY LEVEL of PD! Whether you are early onset or in the later stages of this disease... this program is for you! Here at RSB we are proud to join the NPF in the FIGHT against Parkinson's Disease!
