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 funder 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
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
