Join us on Shake It Up’s Trek for Treatment: Larapinta 2019 and help us raise funds!
Central Australia is abundant with natural beauty, offering everything from ancient red rock formations, spectacular gorges and canyons to crowd-pleasing starry nights, breathtaking sunrises and surreal sunsets.
As part of this incredible adventure, you will experience it all and more as you trek along the legendary Larapinta Trail. Joined by likeminded Shake It Up Australia Foundation supporters, you will visit sites sacred to the Arrernte people and learn the history of Australia’s traditional owners by day. By night, you fall asleep to the sounds of native wildlife under a blanket of stars.

It’s often hard to know how to commemorate a family member, friend or colleague who has passed away. Donating to Parkinson’s research in their memory is a positive and lasting way of celebrating their life, while helping to raise vital funds for Parkinson’s research.
It’s a common misconception that only very wealthy people leave money to charity in their wills. The reality is that most bequests are made by ordinary, hardworking people who want to make a positive difference to causes they care about after they’re gone.
However large or small, a bequest to Shake It Up will make a difference. It will allow Australia’s leading Parkinson’s researchers to focus their attention on finding the cause, better treatments and ultimately a cure for Parkinson’s.
April Parkinson’s Awareness month and throughout the month events are taking place all over the world to raise more awareness and vital funds for research in to better treatments & ultimately a cure. It takes many people to support and execute the progress we strive for. That’s why, throughout the year, Shake It Up is grateful for our incredible community members whose fundraising efforts play an integral role in helping us advance research towards a cure.
