-HISTORY-

Rock Steady Boxing, the first boxing program of its kind in the country, was founded in 2006 by former Marion County (Indiana) Prosecutor, Scott C. Newman, who is living with Parkinson’s.

Newman began intense, one-on-one, boxing training just a few years after he was diagnosed with early-onset Parkinson’s at the age of 40. Newman witnessed the dramatic improvement in his physical health, agility and daily functioning through the intense and high energy workouts. Newman’s quality of life improved dramatically in a short time due to his fighting back against Parkinson’s disease.

As word of this unique program spread and the demand for the classes increased, Rock Steady created training programs to meet the fitness levels at all stages of Parkinson’s – from the newly diagnosed to those who had been living with it for decades plus.

Rock Steady Boxing is often asked about the design of our logo – the Statue of Liberty embellished with a boxing glove. According to Newman, the words inscribed on the Statue of Liberty and the hope symbolized by her presence at Ellis Island, illustrated his dream that Rock Steady Boxing would be a beacon of light and hope for those suffering with Parkinson’s disease.

Our mission is to empower people with Parkinson’s disease to “fight back.”

Rock Steady Boxing is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization (ID #20-5113083) funded primarily by private donations.

Your dollars make a difference. “Our Rock Steady Coaches have been so supportive and encouraging. The RSB classes push us more than we would ever do on our own. The other boxers and their “cornermen” have encouraged us every step of the way and become our new friends. These friendships keep you from feeling like you’re all alone in your battle with Parkinson’s. After just a few months of classes, our friends and family members are commenting on how much better Doug is doing. He is stronger, more engaged in life, and even smiling a bit here and there.” – Carole Lucke

-THE CHALLENGE-

Parkinson’s disease is a degenerative movement disorder which can cause deterioration of motor skills, balance, speech and sensory function.

The Parkinson’s Disease Foundation estimates there are more than 1 million people in the United States diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease, and more than 60,000 people are diagnosed each year. Rock Steady Boxing is the first gym in the country dedicated to the fight against Parkinson’s.
