Lutheran Life Villages and our affiliate partner; Rock Steady Boxing are official charity partners for the 8th Annual Fort4Fitness Fall Festival. Fort4Fitness takes place at Parkview Field September 25-26, 2015! This year's event features a Half Marathon, 10K, 4 Mile Run/Walk, Kids Marathon and Seniors Marathon.
When you participate as a member of the “RSB” charity team at Fort4Fitness, Lutheran Life Villages and its Rock Steady Boxing team will begin to benefit with a portion of your registration. When 100 or more registrants select “RSB”, Fort4Fitness will make an additional contribution to the Rock Steady Boxing program.
Our goal is to give as many people as we can, a chance to fight back against Parkinson’s.

Lutheran Life Villages has teamed up with Rock Steady Boxing (RSB) to enter the fight against Parkinsons. Rock Steady Boxing improves the quality of life for people battling Parkinson’s disease through non-contact, boxing inspired fitness training.
In our gym, exercises are largely adapted from boxing drills. Boxers condition for optimal agility, speed, muscular endurance, accuracy, hand-eye coordination, footwork and overall strength to defend against and overcome opponents. At RSB, Parkinson’s disease is the opponent. Exercises vary in purpose and form but share one common trait: they are rigorous and intended to extend the perceived capabilities of the participant.
Lutheran Life Villages has been providing compassionate, spiritually connected care to the people of Northeast Indiana since 1931. What started as the “Oak Street Home” has evolved to four thriving communities — The Village at Anthony Boulevard, The Village at Kendallville and The Village at Pine Valley and Piper Trail.
While a lot has changed, our mission to serve the older adults in our community has remained the same. And as we continue to grow, we will always strive to provide A Better Way of Living for our residents, our staff and everyone in our community.
