April 11 is World Parkinson’s Day, and throughout the month of April events are taking place all over the world to raise more awareness and vital funds for research into better treatments & ultimately a cure.
As we add the final touches to our Pause 4 Parkinson’s campaign, we’re looking to you, our supporters, to get involved and shake things up. There are a few ways to get involved this April – by hosting your own event, becoming a corporate sponsor, or hosting an event at your workplace.
Just gather your friends, family or work colleagues and hold an event anytime during April doing something you love! Perhaps a wine tasting, art exhibition, music gig or movie night to a morning/afternoon/high tea, sausage sizzle, long lunch, a sporting event – whatever you are into, it doesn’t matter.
We’re also looking for local pharmacies to participate, spread the word about Parkinson’s and fundraise through donation tins. Get in touch if you’re interested! You can register your event here or contact our Community Fundraising and Events Manager, Isobel on firstname.lastname@example.org.
Shake It Up are grateful for our incredible community members whose fundraising efforts play an integral role in helping us advance research towards a cure. Let’s make Pause 4 Parkinson’s 2020 the best year yet!
