Rock Steady Boxing

The mission of Rock Steady Boxing is to empower people with Parkinson’s disease to fight back. Rock Steady Boxing is a nonprofit organization that uses a noncontact fitness curriculum adapted from boxing drills that has been shown to decrease, delay, and even reverse the symptoms of Parkinson’s disease. At RSB, Parkinson’s disease is the opponent.

RSB expects that by the end of 2016, there will be more than 300 affiliate locations throughout the world and that the Rock Steady method will be a worldwide movement in the fight against Parkinson’s.

by Ray Robinson

When Ray first entered the publishing industry, authors relied on “vanity presses” to produce their work – many of whom would charge $15,000 or more and leave the author’s garage filled with hundreds of books. Ray, along with coworker Alan Harris, joined forces with Miles Nelson to create Dog Ear Publishing to provide the author community a self-publisher with a heart. The group’s application of new technologies and publishing on demand reduced the cost of publishing a book to a fraction of what it had been for previous generations; authors now have the ability to publish a book in as little as six weeks and print as few as a single copy.
