A Gift in Memory

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 lasting way to celebrate their life. Through generous donations in memory, Shake It Up can continue funding Australian research in pursuit of a cure for Parkinson’s.

Whether you wish to create an online tribute page, organise donations in lieu of flowers at their memorial, or give a one off personal donation, each special gift in memory of your loved one is a hope for the future without Parkinson’s.

Donate in memory of a loved one

You can make a single or recurring gift in memory of your loved one at our donation page. Enter the details of the person you are making the donation in memory of, and request an acknowledgement to be sent to the family.

In Memory Donations

Fundraise in honour of a loved one

Participating in an athletic event, hosting a fundraiser, or taking on the Shake It Up challenge are all meaningful and personal ways you can honour your loved one and raise funds for ground-breaking Parkinson’s research in their memory.

Here’s Suzanne’s story:

My Dad, who suffered from Parkinson’s disease, completed the Everest Base Camp Trek 50 years ago and I was able to complete it 50 years later almost to the day! I had found his diary he had kept during the trek and he had written a detailed account of his journey. We followed a very similar journey so I was able to follow along with the path he had taken and felt like I was following in his footsteps.
