Non-profit and Serving the Entire Community. Scranton, PA

Rock Steady Boxing (RSB) is a nonprofit organization founded in 2006 that gives people with Parkinson’s disease hope by improving their quality of life through a non-contact, boxing-inspired fitness curriculum. RSB’s mission is to empower people to “fight back” against Parkinson’s disease and enrich both individuals and the community by improving the wellness of older adults. RSB is the only organization in the world well-positioned with an effective, replicable model to address the quality of life needs of men and women dealing with Parkinson’s disease today. The Jewish Home is adding RSB to its host of community programs and invites you to become a volunteer!
