We are proud and honored to present The Suzy Turner Internship!
This intership has been set up to honor Rock Steady Boxing SC’s great friend and volunteer, Suzy Turner. This intership is a paid internship for an applicant who desires to learn more about Rock Steady Boxing SC and the impact it has on fighting Parkinson’s disease.
When Rock Steady Boxing started in Costa Mesa Suzy Turner started volunteering every week bringing along her passion and joy to all of our athletes. This past January ovarian cancer took our beautiful Suzy away.
Suzy had a special way of connecting with people. With a huge smile on her face she played, she laughed and she made you feel important. She gave every ounce of herself to the athletes both in and out of the ring.
Suzy loved the program and volunteered until the very end. After her passing it became apparent that Suzy’s presence would always be felt in the gym where she dedicated so many hours.
An internship has been set in place to be given to an intern who embodies Suzy’s love and hope for the program.
This recipient needs to have passion for the program, experience in the field of Physical Therapy, Occupational Therapy, or Exercise therapy and plans to work with Rock Steady Boxing in the future.
Our first Suzy Turner internship recipient is Andrew Deming!
Andrew graduated from Biola University (2015) with a degree in Kinesiology and plans to further his education by doing post graduate work and becoming a PTA.
As a certified Personal Trainer Andy believes in exercise therapy as a way to help a person overcome limitations set by a disease such as Parkinson’s.
We are excited to have Andy as our first Internship recipient!
