On June 18th, 2004, Steve Gilbert was diagnosed in the early stage of aggressive prostate cancer. Later that year he was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease. This video shares part of his story to health through a truly Monumental experience at the Indianapolis Monumental Marathon. The story Steve shares is one of hope and fulfillment that followed his diagnosis of Parkinson's disease. Five years ago he wandered into the Rock Steady Boxing gym and began a training program for people with Parkinson's that would change his life. As a result of this training he is in the best physical (and spiritual) condition of his life. In the process, he learned that many personal limits are self-imposed and only serve as an excuse not to push farther. Steve found the joy of discovering and appreciating the talents and blessings that God has given him, and of using those gifts as a way of honoring them.
