As the end of the financial year fast approaches I urge you to consider making a tax deductible donation to the Shake It Up Australia Foundation to help us find a cure for Parkinson’s.
Did you know that when you make a donation to Shake It Up 100% of your donation goes towards Australian Parkinson’s research? When I started Shake It Up back in 2011 I made a commitment with my brother Greg to cover all administration and overhead costs so that every cent we raised could be directed to finding a cure for Parkinson’s.
The approach The Michael J. Fox Foundation takes to assessing, funding and project managing world’s best research all over the globe eliminates redundancy, ensures efficiency and unites the global community in the quest to find a cure. Our partnership with them ensures your donation will be used to fund Parkinson’s research in Australia aimed at finding better treatments and ultimately a cure.
We are on a mission to raise $1 million this year to fund the commencement of a Linked Clinical Trials program. This repurposing study could significantly reduce the length of pre-clinical time required and potentially result in faster outcomes for patients. When you live with Parkinson’s disease like I do, every day counts and anything we can do to slow the progress of Parkinson’s while we continue to search for a cure benefits the 80,000 Australians living with the disease.
Please help us in our quest to find a cure by making your tax deductible donation today.
Thank you for your support.
As the country’s leader in strategic Parkinson’s research funding we are excited about the talent we have in our Australian institutes and the prospect that their work will take us closer to a cure.
