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.
Through our partnership with The Michael J. Fox Foundation we know our researchers are at the cutting edge of Parkinson’s research worldwide and each new project we fund moves us closer to a goal: a cure for Parkinson’s.
We guarantee that 100% of all monies received by the Foundation will fund the world’s best Parkinson’s research right here in Australia targeted at finding better treatments and ultimately a cure.
Your gift will advance medical research targeted into Parkinson’s so that we can get to the day that this indiscriminate disease is eliminated from everyone’s lives.
