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

My Story

I am taking part in Larapinta Trek for Treatment to raise much needed funds for Shake It Up Australia for Parkinson’s Research. Their work is really important, and I want to do what I can to help. But there is only so much I can do on my own. You can help too, by donating to my page. Any amount you can give makes a difference! You can also support me by encouraging others to get involved, too. Please email the link to my page to your friends and family, or share it on social media. Thank you for your generosity and support -- it means a lot to me. Together we can help Shake It Up Australia for Parkinson’s Research create the world we want to see.

About Larapinta Trek for Treatment

Join us on Shake It Up’s Trek for Treatment: Larapinta 2019 and help us raise funds!
Central Australia is abundant with natural beauty, offering everything from ancient red rock formations, spectacular gorges and canyons to crowd-pleasing starry nights, breathtaking sunrises and surreal sunsets.
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 $6 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.
The partnership builds upon a strong base of promising Parkinson’s research in Australia and allows both organisations to maximise the impact of capital raised from the Australian Parkinson’s community to accelerate better treatments on the path to a cure. Under the partnership, all funds raised by Shake It Up  Australia Foundation and our supporters are directed toward research efforts in Australia.  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.
