World Parkinson’s Day 2024
Thursday, 4th April 2024


April 11 is World Parkinson’s Day.

At Shake It Up, we believe that when our community comes together, we can make a world of difference.

This time last year, scientists achieved a major breakthrough — the discovery of an urgently needed biomarker for Parkinson’s. Since then, Parkinson’s research is achieving extraordinary momentum, propelling us towards better treatments and opportunities to slow, stop and cure Parkinson’s. Now we need to keep up this momentum with funding for ground-breaking research.

Your support is essential to help us accelerate innovative research and better treatments for people living with Parkinson’s.

100% of your contribution today will go directly to leading Australian researchers working to solve the Parkinson’s puzzle. 

We know you stand behind our vision of a world without Parkinson’s, and we ask for your support to move us closer to this goal.

How you can help

This World Parkinson’s Day, we’re asking for your support to change the future for the 200,000 Aussies living with Parkinson’s and the 38 diagnosed daily.

Together, we can advance cutting-edge Australian research. Our founders cover all the administration and overhead costs of the foundation, so 100% of your donation goes directly to research, making a real difference.


“The good news is everyone has the chance to be on the cutting edge of research,” says Clyde Campbell AM, founder and Chairman of Shake It Up.

“No matter if you have Parkinson’s, care for someone with PD, work with Parkinson’s patients or simply want to help, you can make a huge impact.”
