Fighting Back Against Parkinson's
Lenexa, Kan. – Starting March 29th and continuing throughout the month of April, TITLE Boxing will donate 5% of sales from select TITLE Platinum products to directly benefit Rock Steady Boxing, an Indianapolis-based non-profit organization that uses sweet science-inspired exercise to combat the effects of Parkinson’s. Rock Steady serves participants at any and every stage, from newly diagnosed to those who’ve battled for decades.
“Science-backed statistics and testimonial after testimonial show the very real impact these workouts have on people’s lives,” said Douglas Ward, Marketing Director at TITLE Boxing. “You can’t help but feel inspired and want to be a part of it.”
Research completed by the University of Indianapolis, Butler University and Cleveland Clinic shows high intensity exercise focusing on body movement, balance, rhythm and core strength can positively impact daily living and actually slow the disease’s progression.
Rock Steady Boxing was founded in 2006 by Scott C. Newman in Indianapolis after he himself was diagnosed with Parkinson’s. Newman, a former county prosecutor, who eventually lost his ability to write and type, now throws confident combination after confident combination. And as recently documented in HBO’s The Fight Game, his is one of the many Rock Steady success stories featuring participants improving their abilities, taking control of their lives and standing up to Parkinson’s, and TITLE Boxing is honored to play a role in the fight.
