Shake It UpDate - April 2017 - Latest in Parkinson's News

Dear Shake It Up Supporter,

The final countdown is on as we approach World Parkinson’s Day – next Tuesday 11 April – and there is no better time to get involved and to support Australian Parkinson’s research.

Shake It Up, together with The Michael J. Fox Foundation are the largest non-government funders of Parkinson’s research across multiple institutes in Australia. Since establishment in 2011 we have funded $3 million dollars in Australian Parkinson’s research.

To celebrate World Parkinson’s Day we encourage you to make a Donation to Parkinson’s research

100% of all donations support Australian Parkinson’s research targeted at better treatments and ultimately a cure.

Our World Parkinson’s day campaign, Pause 4 Parkinson’s, continues throughout April, so there is still time to gather your friends, family and colleagues and unite to raise awareness and funds for Australian Parkinson’s research. There is also a global movement currently underway called Unite for Parkinson’s. As part of your Pause 4 Parkinson’s event we encourage you to use your social media to include the hashtag #UniteForParkinson’s and help bring global awareness to Parkinson’s.

Together we can unite to give a voice for those living with Parkinson’s, and raise funds for vital Australian Parkinson’s research.

Until next time.

Clyde and the Shake It Up team
