O’FALLON – KMOX is highlighting one community, not-for-profit organization each month as the Voice of Caring (VOC) partner. For the month of March, they have selected Rock Steady Boxing of O’Fallon.
Rock Steady Boxing O’Fallon was started by Deb Belsheim and helps people with Parkinson’s through exercise programs, support and fun ways to enjoy life. During the exercise programs, members use anything from balls to ropes to free weights to improve their balance, strength, range of motion and more.
“Parkinson’s causes unique symptoms. Our boxers enjoy the camaraderie that comes from being around others with PD. They get one another,” Belsheim said.
Everyone who helps out at Rock Steady Boxing, included Deb herself, are all volunteers. Rock Steady Boxing encourages the community to join their fight, Fighting Back Against Parkinson’s.
