Advisory Council                                          Friends of Boxers with Parkinson's


President:  Michael Sellars. 


Mike was a founder of BwP and the driver for the app.  He is a "Parkie", a Rock Steady Boxer, coach and affiliate serving two Rock Steady locations.  His professional life was in sales and marketing primarily with high tech companies.  His background with IBM drove his interest in converting data for 40,000 Rock Steady boxers from paper to the cloud.  Mike is a Rotarian and Paul Harris Fellow.  Mike is a boxing for Parkinson's advocate but an exercise for Parkinson's fanatic, and as such, he boxes, plays tennis and bikes.


Director:  Rick Dagg. 

Rick grew up in Seattle and graduated from Washington State University with a degree in Fine Arts and Education.  He taught art and math for a short time followed by a lifelong career in the wholesale window coverings industry.  He started as a sales representative and soon became Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Hunter Douglas. In recent years he enjoyed his own retail window coverings business.  Rick has Parkinson's and loves Rock Steady Boxing.  In retirement he enjoys painting, gardening and his family and friends.

Walt graduated from the University of Idaho.  He joined Travelers Insurance Company becoming a general manager.  The next ten years Walt was a partner in a financial services agency and subsequently, he spent 30 years as owner of his own financial services agency.  He is active in his church.  Walt has Parkinson's and is a Rock Steady boxer.
