"I missed my court date," said one Police Athletic League youth to another as Kansas City Kansas PAL Director Matt Tomasic walked by. Tomasic's "there has to be a better way" alarm started going off three sentences into the story.

Since September, the PAL has hosted Rock Steady Boxing, a program of the Parkinson's Exercise and Wellness Center (PEWC), for classes mornings Monday through Thursday. This program is the first of its kind in Wyandotte County. Rock Steady Boxing provides an exercise regime designed to improve the quality of life of people living with Parkinson's Disease.
