Kickin' It For Parkinson's Kickball Tournament Is April 2

  • Wednesday, March 29, 2023
Rock Steady Boxing Chattanooga is starting April for Parkinson’s Awareness month with their third annual Kickin’ It for Parkinson’s kickball tournament. The event will be held at the Jack Mattox Park in Ringgold on Sunday, April 2. Music will be provided by one of their very own PD warriors, Nick Honerkamp and his band, The Pool. 

Teams will be created in groups of nine-11 at $20/person. Individuals may register as a team, or as a free agent and be put on a team. Register here.

Officials said, "With currently over 50 active participants, completing bi-annual assessments, Rock Steady Boxing Chattanooga  continues to prove a delayed disease progression, increased strength and balance skills, let alone improved social interactions, confidence and quality of life."

“We ware revisiting our youth," said Tim Mullinax, long time participant in the Rock Steady Boxing Chattanooga program states.
“Even though our demographic is sort of skewed and we aren’t as young as we used to be, Rock Steady Boxing is a lifesaver for those of us with PD. The intensive exercise pushes our motor skills. The complex routines push our cognitive skills, and our class pushes each other. Throw in kickball and its a return to yesteryear, and a lot of fun.”

Rock Steady Boxing Chattanooga is one of many PD programs at Our House Studios. "We also offer Pedaling for Parkinson’s free to the community, as well as a Tango for Parkinson’s class led by an expert instructor who only charges $10/couple/class," officials said. "We are driven to create the best environment for people with PD, and supporting this annual event helps us sustain the year so we can continue to reach those in our Parkinson’s community."
