DEDHAM, Mass. – The second “Fight Night,” a charity boxing event presented by Punch4Parkinsons, will be held Saturday night, October 23rd, at Moseley’s On The Charles in Dedham, Massachusetts.
Regular people, not professional or amateur boxers, will lace up their gloves to support Punch4Parkinsons’ fight against Parkinson’s disease. A memorable night will include numerous boxing exhibitions, each a scheduled 3-round (1:30 per round) match.
“Through our charity ‘Fight Night’ we are able to support local boxing gyms with rock steady programs,” Punch4Parkinsons founder/president Ryan Roach explained, “as well as one-on-one and small group boxing lessons. We cover 100-percent of Parkinson’s fighters’ gym memberships. We now have more than 100 Parkinson’s fighters, mostly in New England, but we do have some fighters in Florida and Texas.
“One of our fighters recently went to the doctor and she had dropped 20 points on the Parkinson’s scale. She attributes this to the boxing we provide her three times a week.”
Last year’s “Fight Night” charity event was canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
