Register for an event in your State

Join in the fight to cure Parkinson’s.

Whether you have Parkinson’s or want to support a loved one living with the disease, joining an athletic event and challenging yourself for Parkinson’s is a great way to make a difference. Events range from fun runs, swimming events to endurance events with most events catering for all ages and various fitness levels. It’s simple to get involved – just register for an event in your state, create a fundraising page and ask your friends and family to support you. We will be there to help you every step of the way.

We also guarantee 100% of every dollar you raise is invested into leading Parkinson’s research right here in Australia – our founders cover all the administration costs of the foundation so your fundraising is making a real difference.

If there are no current events in your state, you can join the Shake It Up Virtual Challenge and create your own personal challenge.
