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.
You can also make a flat donation.
All the money goes to improve the quality of life of local people fighting Parkinson's disease.
All of the donations from Punching for Parkinson’s stay in the Knoxville area to improve the quality of life for local people fighting Parkinson’s disease.
The funds help support local 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.
All of the money stays local, to help local people fight Parkinson's disease.
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.
