Our hero Sharon hosted a fundraiser for Pause 4 Parkinson’s by having a ‘Shake 4 Shakes’ day at her business where they donated half the takings from their delicious protein shakes.
What Drives Your Commitment to find a cure for Parkinson’s?
My awesomely amazing Mum, who does anything & everything for so many others has been struck with this crippling disease. We have been lucky so far and she is only having very mild tremors and her medication is helping with them. However I have also had a very close friend, who has not been so lucky. His mind and personality has been severely altered by Parkinson’s, he is truly now a different man.
Why Shake It Up Australia?
Mainly because 100% of funds raised stays here in Australia for research. Also chose the ‘Shake It Up Australia’ as it goes hand in hand with our business
Tell us what you are doing to Shake Things Up?
We called our Pause 4 Parkinson’s day ‘Shake 4 Shakes’ Day and we donated half of the takings from the healthy protein shakes we made & sold on the day.
During the promotion of the event and the event day – we were putting out more awareness for the disease Parkinson’s and looking forward to the funding helping research. The biggest reward will be the cure. Also young Isaac deserved a reward for his extreme unselfishness when he emptied his money box to make his donation to Nanna Jean ( my Mum ).
