Our Hero Kathleen Shakes it Up for Parkinson’s

Kathleen with her Dad

Our hero this week is Kathleen who has held two fundraisers for Shake It Up.  Kathleen’s dad was diagnosed with Parkinson’s in 2015 and since then she has been passionate about raising funds for research.  

Her fundraisers have ranged from a 10 day cycling challenge to her latest cocktail party event.  

After my fathers diagnosis in 2015 I decided to partake in my first fundraising event. I cycled for 10 days and raised $2487 while doing so.

This year I decided to hold a cocktail fundraiser party for Shake It Up’s Pause 4 Parkinson’s campaign.

We had games (pin the neurotransmitter on the midbrain & trivia), raffles, lucky door prizes and a silent auction.

The night was a huge success raising a total of $3000.00.

I was very lucky to have wonderful businesses donate prizes including a hot air balloon ride!

Big thank you to all my wonderful helpers and everyone that donated.

Register your interest to host your own fundraising event for Pause 4 Parkinson’s 2018 and help raise much needed funds for research.
