Why are proceeds going to The Parkinson’s Education and Support Group of Sussex County?

The Parkinson’s Disease Foundation estimates there are more than 1 million people in the United States diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease, and more than 60,000 people are diagnosed each year.  Parkinson's disease is caused by a breakdown in the nerve cells in the brain.   The affected nerve cells do not produce enough dopamine, which affects the person's ability to move the way they want.  Tremors, stiff muscles, slow or limited movement, and trouble with balance or walking are all typical symptoms of Parkinson’s disease.   In time, Parkinson’s affects muscles throughout the body, leading to difficulty swallowing, digestion, facial movement, and sometimes dementia.  

For people with Parkinson’s, exercise is more than about being healthy; it is a absolutely vital component to maintaining balance, mobility and the ability to perform activities of daily living.  RISE Fitness + Adventure is passionate about helping people in Sussex County who suffer from this crippling disease.  They offer daily group fitness programs that help fight the effects of the disease.  

Saturday at 12pm (before the Strongman Seminar) RISE members who suffer from Parkinson’s will be performing in their own version of a Strongman/Powerlifting event.  Anyone interested in more information or who would like to attend the event can contact the RISE team at
