Newhouse MVJ 2019

Rock Steady

This project was a month long collaboration with the MPJ students. I had the pleasure to work with Gabe Kotico and Levingston Lewis, two amazing storytellers and awesome guys. We worked on the project extensively to really connect with Pat, our subject matter expert, so we can learn more about why he is so passionate about helping those with Parkinson’s disease.

Parkinson’s disease is a degenerative movement disorder which can cause deterioration of motor skills, balance, speech and sensory function. Rock Steady Boxing, a nonprofit organization, gives people with Parkinson’s disease hope by improving their quality of life through a non-contact boxing based fitness curriculum.
