You have never done a fund raiser like this before!
Punching for Parkinson’s is a “punch-a-thon.”
Boxers register to throw the punches. Then they recruit donors to pledge money for every punch they land. Donors can also make a flat donation.
All the money goes to improve the quality of life of local people fighting Parkinson's disease.
On July 18th, 2020, boxers and spectators will gather at TITLE Boxing Club Knoxville to hit their punching bag as many times as possible in one minute.
Music. Cheering. Punching. Cookies. Gifts.
It is a fun, exciting and inspiring event.
All of the donations from Punching for Parkinson’s will be used to improve the quality of life for local people fighting Parkinson’s in East Tennessee. It funds exercise programs, transportation, in-home care, home modifications, medical equipment, exercise equipment, physical therapy, and ANYTHING that will help get our neighbors with Parkinson's get up and moving again.
This will not go to some big-profile, high-overhead research charity in another city.
The money stays local, to help local people fight Parkinson's disease.
Pledge per punch or make a simple donation. All proceeds go to local folks with Parkinson's to help improve their quality of life.
Any amount makes a difference.
If you would rather throw the punches yourself, register to box and get supporters to back you.
Get your whole organization behind you.
Pick a fight with a rival.
Just get in here and give it your all!
REGISTRATION STARTS SOON!

Parkinson’s disease is vicious.
It pulls no punches and it doesn't fight fair.
It can be embarrassing.
It can be isolating.
It can cause depression and apathy.
It wants to shrink you down to nothing.
But, with good community, instruction, motivation and information, you can fight it.
We are here to give local people every chance and every weapon in the known arsenal to
bring the fight to Parkinson's.

2019 was the first year of Punching for Parkinson's so we were halfway though the year before we had access to the funds.
-None the less, the money we raised was used to purchase a rack of 60 dumbbells for the local Rock Steady Boxing affiliate. These weights added a new dimension of strength training to that program.
-We have also been able to provide scholarships and equipment for several Parkinson's fighters to attend Rock Steady Boxing. Rock Steady is an exceptional exercise program and support group uniquely for people Fighting Parkinson's.
-Most recently, PK Hope is Alive has begun offering free guided monthly Nordic Walking walks to local people with Parkinson's. Nordic Walking has been shown to be exceptional in helping PD fighters improve their gait and get a great full-body workout in the outdoors.
In 2020 we see more of the same but to a much greater extent. Scholarships, equipment, coaching certifications, specialized classes, home modifications. Anything that will help local people fighting Parkinson's get the boost they need to help them live their fullest life.
