The Taylorville Kiwanis Club got to hear from a local business fighting against Parkinson’s disease at their weekly meeting at the Taylorville Memorial Hospital Auditorium. Lisa Tarr, owner of Rock Steady Boxing in Taylorville was this week’s guest speaker, and shared how through boxing, Rock Steady is helping people fight against the onset of Parkinson’s.
Tarr shared with the Kiwanis members what inspired her to open Rock Steady Boxing in Taylorville.
Rock Steady Boxing in Taylorville is part of a larger network of boxing gyms dedicated to helping people fight Parkinson’s. Tarr said how the company was founded, and how boxing helps many cope with the disease.
Rock Steady is funded entirely on donations, and recently held an open house to help raise funds for equipment. A membership to the Rock Steady Boxing Gym costs $65 per month, and for more information on the gym, you can call 820-1799.
