Family of long-time parkinson’s fighter dedicates equipment to Midland gym


Rock Steady Boxing Mid-Michigan held a dedication last week in honor of one of their first fighters who passed away in February.

The ceremony for Ruth Ann Johnson was held at the main office on James Savage Road, next to M-20, on July 16.

Her husband of 60 years, Phil, said she did not want traditional sympathy flowers after her passing.

“So, what she asked for was … donations to Rock Steady or to Hospice Heartland.”

The overwhelming number of donations made it possible for Rock Steady to buy a new piece of equipment. Ruth Ann’s family gathered last week to officially dedicate the apparatus.
