We’re back for 2021 and getting ready to launch Pause 4 Parkinson’s!
Monday, 15th February 2021

April 11 is World Parkinson’s Day, and throughout the month of April fundraising and awareness raising events will be taking place all over the world with one goal in mind: a cure for Parkinson’s Disease. This year, we’ll be focusing on the word IMPACT, and what it means for the Parkinson’s community. IMPACT means:





As we add the final touches to our Pause 4 Parkinson’s 2021 campaign, we’re looking to you, our supporters, to get involved and make an IMPACT for the future of Parkinson’s. There are a few ways to get involved this April – by hosting your own fundraising, raising awareness in your community, becoming a corporate sponsor, or collaborating with your workplace.

Just gather your friends, family or work colleagues and hold a COVID-safe event or fundraising 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 tickles your fancy. Keep an eye on our website and social media for more information about hosting safe events or fundraising.

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 for more information.

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 2021 the best year yet!
