PSCNN is proud to offer our very first ‘Movement Fair’ to the northern Nevada Parkinson’s disease community. This event is free and open to the public. It will promote local options for exercise and movement for people with Parkinson’s disease. There will be demonstrations by fitness instructors, physical therapists, occupational therapists, as well as short testimonials about the ‘life of exercise’ from people living with the disease. Representatives of local and national companies that help with movement in other ways will have information, such as learning about deep brain stimulation or innovative walking equipment.
We will also have a raffle! Each person who attends will be entered into our raffle drawing. Prizes range from PT session assessments, Rock Steady Boxing passes, tank floats, Nordic walking poles, magnetic clothing, rock climbing passes, baskets of exercise goodies and more.
There is no cure for Parkinson’s disease, but exercise can decrease the severity of symptoms. The PSCNN Movement Fair will present options for our northern Nevada community so that you can find what fits your style, what will get you up and out of your chair, and what will excite you to move!
