Holly joins the Larapinta Trek for Parkinson’s
Thursday, 7th February 2019

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.

Why Shake It Up Australia?

Shake It Up are committed to providing a better future by finding a cure for Parkinsons. Passionate people supporting a passionate cause.

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.

Greatest Reward

Knowing that one day, people won’t have to live with Parkinson’s.

Best advice for people looking to Shake It Up?

Just do it.

If you would like to support Holly you can make a donation to her fundraising page
