What Drives Your Commitment to find a cure for Parkinson’s?
My commitment to Parkinson’s comes from having a great friend diagnosed with PD at a very young age. He was diagnosed & I feel like I can at least try to help find a cure.
Why Shake It Up Australia?
I chose Shake It Up as my place to raise funds for because I like the what they stand for. The fact that all funds raised remain in Australia & 100% of funds raised go directly towards finding a cure.
Tell us what you are doing to Shake Things Up?
Trying to shake things up I have ridden my bike from Canada to Patagonia a total of 23,000km. In the process I have tried to raise awareness for the number of people diagnosed with PD per year.
I believe we can find a cure in our lifetime. I want to prove to people anything is possible including finding a cure.
My greatest reward on this ride has been using it to raise funds for Shake It Up. If I can raise just $1 I am incredibly happy.
Best advice for people looking to Shake It Up?
I want to encourage people to shake it up in any way they can. It doesn’t have to be a 23,000km ride it can be anything at all a bake sale a sporting event anything to spread the message.
