[ARCHIVED] April Designated Parkinson's Awareness Month

Parkinsons Month

Mayor Kathy Bailey proclaimed April 2021 as Parkinson’s Awareness Month at the April 13 City Council meeting.

The proclamation was received by Mark Fox, owner of TITLE Boxing Club in Loveland. Since 2015, TITLE Boxing Club has been fighting against the disease by offering non-contact, boxing-inspired fitness routines to provide hope and better quality of life to those living with Parkinson’s Disease (PD). 

TITLE offers a Rock Steady Boxing class that targets five issues that PD impacts: balance, flexibility, mobility, cognitive agility, and vocal cord impairment. To learn more about the Rock Steady Boxing program, read this article from Men’s Health.

PD is a chronic, progressive, neurological disease and is the second most common neurodegenerative disease in the United States. Clinical research studies have shown that boxing exercise can be helpful to people living with PD. 

PD is estimated to affect approximately 1 million people in the US, and the prevalence will rise to 1.2 million by 2030. It is the 14th leading cause of death in the US, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
