Our newest Shake It Up Ambassador, Amy Ruffle, completed the Run Melbourne Half Marathon on the weekend, raising funds and awareness for Parkinson’s on the way. Amy is an actor, producer and comedian best known for her lead role in NETFLIX’s Mako Mermaids and various stage productions here in Australian and in Los Angeles. She joined the Shake It Up team to support her father Rob, who lives with Parkinson’s.
Thanks to Amy’s fundraising efforts through Run Melbourne, she has raised $3,115 for Parkinson’s research. Congratulations, Amy! We spoke to Amy to hear more about her inspiration for this half marathon.
