Five million people worldwide are living with Parkinson's disease - a chronic, degenerative neurological disorder. In the United States, 60,000 new cases will be diagnosed this year alone. Up to now, there is no known cure for Parkinson's disease.
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 funds in our own community. Your support will help NPF continue improving the quality of care for those living with Parkinson's disease.

How did RSB NY/LA started?
It all started when Dr. Roberta Marongiu, neuro-scientist at Weill Cornell Medical College, witnessed a Rock Steady Boxing demonstration at the 2013 World Parkinson's Conference in Montreal, almost a year ago. She was so impressed by the dynamic and positive nature of the program and how effective it was on both a physical and psychological level, that she called her husband Alex Montaldo, stage and film actor, right away and shared her excitement with him. He signed on in a heartbeat and, lo and behold, he was on a plane to Indianapolis to take the Rock Steady Boxing training. Once back in New York City, he spoke with close friend Kathleen Glick, entrepreneur and film producer, who too immediately decided to join the fight against Parkinson's.
Now, after having spent several months laying down their battle plan and having had their fair share of difficulties, Rock Steady Boxing NY/LA is up and running.
Rock Steady boxing NY/LA is a Rock Steady Boxing affiliate and shares the same philosophy in the fight against Parkinson’s disease! Rock steady Boxing NY/LA's mission is to maximize the mental, emotional and physical potential of people with Parkinson’s disease throughout their lives. The program helps them to adapt, eliminating the commonly occurring negative self-talk or self-image accompanying this illness. Instead, we emphasize the enhancements possible to their quality of life and ability to perform and enjoy activities of daily living. We offer non-impact boxing based classes to help PD patients alleviate their symptoms and assess their improvements through periodical follow-ups.
