2019 was a huge year for our Shake It Up fundraisers who collectively raised over $423,538 for Parkinson’s research by hosting their own DIY events, or participating in an athletic event. We are so grateful to have such an active, engaged and generous group of supporters willing to commit their time and energy to raise awareness and funds for this important cause. For our hero post this week, we thought we’d look back on our top 10 fundraisers that hosted events in 2019 and highlight their achievements.
