Rock Steady started when the Parkinson’s Society of South Western Ontario started looking for a local fitness class to recommend to people living with Parkinson’s. Cam Davis agreed and started a small exercise class. In August 2017, the Parkinson’s Society offered to send Cam and a coworker to Indianapolis, headquarters for the Rock Steady Boxing program, to become certified coaches. That lucky coworker was me! I became so inspired that weekend that I came back knowing I’m going to do this; this can change people’s lives. I took the reins and started Rock Steady Boxing Sarnia Lambton in October 2017, and the program has quickly grown from a few members to over 20 boxers today. Justine
Rock Steady Boxing has made a substantial impact on my social and physical support. It gives us structure and a dedicated commitment to exercise on a weekly schedule. The leaders put tremendous effort into the development of each session. Their emotional investment in the program and compassion is evident with each session. What initially started with six individuals has grown to over 20 people. The camaraderie amongst the participants is priceless. We are so lucky to have such an investment in our community for Parkinson’s patients. Tom B.
