Our hero for this week is Holly, who, after seeing the effect that Parkinson’s has had on her nan, decided to join our Larapinta Trek and fundraise towards a cure for Parkinson’s.
What Drives Your Commitment to find a cure for Parkinson’s?
Having seen how much it has affected my Nan and other people around me is just heartbreaking. I’d love to see a day where there is a cure for Parkinson’s as no one should have to see a loved one, or even themself have to go through this horrible disease.

Tell us what you are doing/did to Shake Things Up?
This year I am taking part in the Larapinta Trek for Treatment in August. I have been raising funds just through online donations so far but do have a movie night coming up next week where I hope to raise as much as I can for this cause.
Knowing that one day, people won’t have to live with Parkinson’s.
