I don’t often make a giant call out to my fellow bloggers, but I’m asking you human to human to do me a favor. I read so many of the posts that pop up on my feed and I am humbled by the human connection and willingness to share with a community.
I am a volunteer boxing coach for Parkinson’s patients. One of my boxers entered our little program into a competition to win $6000. This money would go to funding new equipment for our boxers to exercise with and covering monthly costs for those who couldn’t afford it.
Why should you care?
Our program, because it is an exercise program, is not funded by any national Parkinson’s foundations. We as boxing coaches do not take any money for ourself and have dedicated our time to helping our boxers fight against a disease that currently has no cure.
How to help
All it takes is one vote per email address for Rock Steady Boxing Brownsburg. If you could vote every day up until March 31st, I would be eternally grateful to my WordPress community.
I usually use my blog post to share about things in my life that have happened to me. I talk about the good things, the bad things, and the things that just make me laugh. Today, however, I want to talk about a program that is near and dear to me.
I am a coach for a boxing program for Parkinson’s patients. No, they don’t beat each other up as a workout. We do, however, teach them boxing style workout techniques that help to keep their symptoms at bay. As the rebels of the Parkinson’s community, I get to see a hard-working group of people fight back against a disease that currently has no cure.
Our little affiliate program hosts a group of 46 boxers currently that can best be described as my family members. No boxer is just a boxer to me.
It has be the best volunteer job I’ve ever had. We don’t get paid for what we do and the money we earn goes directly back into equipment costs and member fees for those that can’t afford it.
One of our boxers had the idea to enter us in a competition to win $6000 towards our program. It’s a program where you vote once a day per email account. If you could please vote for Rock Steady Boxing I would be deeply indebted to my blogging community. All it takes is sharing this post and voting once a day to help us win.
The money would be used to fund a larger gym and better equipment for the boxing program. Wraps, gloves, and speedbags are all things we could use more of.
