|Dear Shake It Up Supporter,
Let me start by extending a big thank you to everyone who has supported the foundation. With the end of the financial year approaching now is a great time to make a tax deductible donation to Parkinson’s research. Thanks to our founders funding all the administration and overhead costs of the foundation you can be assured that 100% of your donation will fund Parkinson’s research projects in Australia.
We have some exciting projects coming up in the next year, one being our Clinical Research projects into repurposed drugs which could provide potential benefits to people living with Parkinson’s. As these drugs are already approved for humans the trials will fast track outcomes for people living with Parkinson’s now and provide new hope for improved drug treatments to slow or halt the progression of Parkinson’s whilst we continue with our efforts to find a cure.
There are so many ways you can make a difference and get involved. Whether it is through a direct donation, fundraising by hosting an event or participating in one of the many athletic events around the country. Find out more be visiting our website.
Our challenge as always is to maintain momentum. We must be positive about what has been achieved but remain focussed on the fact that there is still work to be done. Now is a crucial time for us all to do what we can in the quest for a cure.
Until next time.
