I am raising much needed funds for Shake It Up Australia for Parkinson’s Research. This area of research is very important to me, and I hope that I can make a small difference by raising some money while running the City to Surf this year. Parkinson's is characterised by symptoms such as slowness of movement and trouble walking. Many people think Parkinson's is 'just the shakes' but along with the more well known symptoms such as tremor, Parkinson's can also cause symptoms such as mood changes, trouble with sleeping and dementia, to name but a few. Parkinson's affects up to 10 million people worldwide, and more research is badly needed to shed some light on its cause and to improve available treatments. If you can, I would really appreciate your support as I raise money for Parkinson's. If you aren't able to give money you could also support me by sharing this page on social media to help me spread the word. 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 find a cure.
