Why I am supporting Shake It Up Australia for Parkinson’s Research

My Story

After being diagnosed with Parkinson's nine years ago at the age of 44, I am passionate about finding ways to slow, stop and cure Parkinson's. After being diagnosed I had a choice, "Did I want to be Clyde that had Parkinson's or Clyde that did something about having Parkinson's". That choice was an obvious one for me, and I set about making a difference. In 2011 I established Shake It Up Australia Foundation in partnership with The Michael J. Fox Foundation to fund Parkinson's Research in Australia. Since then we have funded over $10.8 Million into Australian research targeted at finding better treatments and ultimately the cure. For me, exercise is crucial to managing my symptoms, so this year I have committed to walk the Larapinta Trail in Central Australia with other like minded supporters that are as passionate about finding a cure as I am. The Larapinta Trail starts from the old Alice Springs Telegraph Station to the peak of Mount Sonder I know that with every kilometre I cover I'll be helping to raise funds for research to find better treatments and ultimately the cure. I'm committed to making a difference and together with my brother Greg we have committed to funding all the overhead and administration costs of the foundation. This means that 100% of every donation will make it into the hands of an Australian researcher. Thank you for your generosity and support -- it means a lot to me. Together we can help make the future better for people living with Parkinson's

About Larapinta Trek for Treatment


As part of this incredible adventure, you will experience it all and more as you trek along the legendary Larapinta Trail. Joined by likeminded Shake It Up Australia Foundation supporters, you will visit sites sacred to the Arrernte people and learn the history of Australia’s traditional owners by day. By night, you fall asleep to the sounds of native wildlife under a blanket of stars.
What’s more, every dollar you raise through Shake It Up’s Trek for Treatment: Larapinta 2019 will be directed to Parkinson’s research in Australia to find better treatments and ultimately find a cure for Parkinson’s.

About my cause: Shake It Up Australia for Parkinson’s Research

Shake It Up Australia Foundation is a not-for-profit organisation established in 2011 and in partnership with The Michael J. Fox Foundation (MJFF) promotes and funds Parkinson’s disease research in Australia aimed at better treatments and ultimately a cure.

To date, the foundation together with our partners at The Michael J. Fox Foundation have co-funded over $10.8 Million into Australian Parkinson's research and are the largest non-government funders across multiple research institutes.

The foundation was established by Clyde Campbell, a father of three and business owner who was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease in 2009 at the age of 44. Clyde set out to find out as much as he could about the disease and determine what he could do in a practical sense to assist. His search led him to the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research in the United States and the remarkable work they do to fund medical research targeted at finding better treatments on the path to a cure for Parkinson’s disease. We also guarantee that 100% of your donation is directed into research, this is made possible by our founding directors covering all overhead and administration costs of the foundation.

As the country’s leader in strategic Parkinson’s research funding we are excited about the talent we have in our Australian institutes and the prospect that their work will take us closer to a cure.
