Help Us Knock Out Parkinson’s
Punch 4 Parkinson’s (P4P) is a charitable organization focused on developing, implementing and funding non-combat boxing programs for those suffering from Parkinson’s Disease. Research has shown that high-intensity exercise like boxing slows and oftentimes reverses the progression of Parkinson’s symptoms, and we’ve seen first-hand the remarkable physical and cognitive benefits.
