REBOPS part of Scottsdale Expo; see how they fight against Parkinson's

There will be nearly 20 non-profit partners at Tour de Scottsdale riding in the event and making people aware of who they are how they are to help.

One is REBOPS for Parkinson’s which is “fully committed to ‘Keeping you upright & in the fight.’”

REBOPS is Exercise, Boxing, Overcoming Parkinson's.

According to REBOPS neurological disorders, led by Parkinson's Disease, have become the leading cause of disability worldwide. Over the last 25 years, the number of people with Parkinson's has doubled to over 10 million sufferers now. There's currently no prevention, cure, or way to predict who it will strike next. It's not just for "old men" anymore!

Since 2016, REBOPS has been breaking the stigma around Parkinson's, making it everyone's concern. REBOPS helps support those living with Parkinson's, their caregivers, and those who may not realize how close they are to this condition.

“At REBOPS we see Parkinson's Disease (PD) as "The Un-One", because it is Unpredictable, Unpreventable, Uncurable (Incurable) and if we all would choose to live in such a way as to minimize its effects on our bodies and minds through specific exercises, movements, dietary practices and stress management, it is unbelievably valuable to our longevity, health and happiness ... Whether we ever contract the disease or not,” said Jim Hall, CEO/Founder of REBOPS.

REBOPS is proud to part of Tour de Scottsdale Expo. Representatives from the Parkinson's Support providers programs at The Pound Gym, The Valley of the Sun JCC, The PWR! Program will be there. 

They want to get the word out for this important and dreaded disease.

“Because anyone can get Parkinson's, we believe everyone should learn more about it and take steps to minimize it, both personally and to help others,” Hall said. “REBOPS is 100% committed to expanding all our ‘radar,’ so we're more aware and more involved... everywhere, for everyone. That's why we are traveling to Arizona during April.”

Why is it important? Because it could happen to anyone.

Then comes Jim’s final words: “I want to thank every single person I've ever met who has Parkinson's; I may have taught many of you how to be a boxer, but you've shown me what it means to be a fighter."
