In April, viewers will see Rock on Bounce TV's new orginal show Mann & Wife. In addition to his 15 years of experience in entertainment, Rock established the MyROCK Diabetes Foundation, a charity organization in honor of his late father, Julius.  

MyRock Foundation was created to help build awareness and prevention of diabetes among African Americans. 

"I'm proud of the fact that I grew up where I did, and I've made it to where I am in life because I could've been a statistic just like a lot of my friends."

The foundation raises awareness of diabetes and its effects on the African American community. Every year, Rock hosts family-focused fundraising events in New York and California.

In 2015, Rock kicked off a "Get Fit Stay Fit" campaign, a Celebrity Boot Camp that empowers people with the tools needed to stay healthy. Sponsored by his MyROCK Diabetes Foundation, Participants engage in a variety of fitness activities at no cost.
