AKtivate Fitness Rocksteady Boxing Fundraiser

May 10 @ 8:00 am - August 31 @ 5:00 pm

Join Us in Fighting Parkinson’s with Aktivate Fitness Rock Steady Boxing and Pedaling for Parkinson’s!

We are reaching out to you on behalf of Aktivate Fitness Rock Steady Boxing, a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to empowering individuals with Parkinson’s Disease (PD) through specialized fitness programs. We are currently seeking donations to sponsor our upcoming Pedaling for Parkinson’s Program, aimed at enhancing the lives of people living with PD in our community. 

The Challenge- Parkinson’s Disease is a progressive neurodegenerative disorder that affects movement and coordination. Individuals with PD often face daily challenges, including muscle stiffness, tremors, and balance issues, which can significantly impact their quality of life. While there is no cure for PD, research has shown that regular exercise can help manage symptoms and improve overall well-being. Specifically, cycling can reduce PD symptoms by up to 35%. 

Our Solution- Aktivate Fitness Rock Steady Boxing is committed to providing accessible and effective fitness programs tailored specifically for individuals with PD. Adding the “Pedaling for Parkinson’s” program combines the benefits of cycling with targeted exercises designed to address the motor symptoms associated with PD. Through structured workouts and personalized support, participants can experience improved mobility, balance, and strength. 

Why Your Support Matters- With your generous donations (Goal: $25,000+), we can fully sponsor the “Pedaling for Parkinson’s” Program, covering the costs of equipment, instructor fees, and participant scholarships. Your contribution will directly impact the lives of individuals with PD in our community, providing them with the resources they need to thrive physically, mentally, and emotionally. 

How You Can Help in Making a Difference- Your support is crucial in helping us reach our fundraising goal ($25,000+) and make a lasting difference in the lives of those affected by Parkinson’s Disease. We invite you to join us in our mission by donating today. Your generosity will enable us to continue offering life-changing programs that bring joy, strength, and hope to individuals living with Parkinson’s Disease. 

Many thanks to you for considering our request for support!
