BENEFITING: GLEASONS GIVE A KID A DREAM
EVENT DATE: Nov 28, 2015
FUNDRAISING FOR ROCK STEADY BOXING NY/LA
A Toronto native, Michael Payton is now a researcher in the Center for Neuroscience at New York University where he studies vision, memory and consciousness. Now the Canadian grace of Greenwich Village, Michael can be found at the NYU gym on a regular basis giving the college athletes a run for their money.
Michael began boxing in the Cabbagetown Boxing Gym in Toronto years ago under Rey Morales, but this is his first fight. A love of the sport and an interest in strategy has brought him back to test his skills and his endurance.
Michael is fighting because he's seen the damage done by Parkinson's and knows that Rock Steady can help many people suffering from this illness.
