What is Parkinson’s Disease?

Parkinson's disease (PD) is a long-term degenerative disorder of the central nervous system that mainly affects the movement.  Common symptoms include tremors, rigid movements, slurred speech, and slowing of movement that can make a simple task like getting out of chair frustratingly time-consuming.

The statistics from the Parkinson’s Foundation are staggering:

  • Nearly one million will be living with Parkinson's disease (PD) in the U.S. by 2020, which is more than the combined number of people diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, muscular dystrophy and Lou Gehrig's disease (or Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis)

  • Approximately 60,000 Americans are diagnosed with PD each year.

  • More than 10 million people worldwide are living with PD.

  • The incidence of Parkinson’s disease increases with age, but an estimated four percent of people with PD are diagnosed before age 50.

  • Men are 1.5 times more likely to have Parkinson's disease than women.

Why Rock Steady Boxing at Evolve NY?

It is estimated that 1-1.5 million Americans have Parkinson’s disease, with as many as 60 thousand new cases being diagnosed each year. The Rock Steady Boxing program provides an opportunity to drastically improve physical condition, mobility, renewed hope, quality of life, and also adds the sense of community for people living with Parkinson’s disease.

NBC Nightly News will air the Evolve NY and Rock Steady Boxing Section on Saturday,  October 20th at or around 6:30-6:45 p.m.
