Story

“Live in the moment, enjoy the day, make the most of what you have” – Michael J. Fox

Hello! Our names are Claire and Elizabeth and we would love to share our story with you!

Everyday 32 Australians are diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease. Today that is 32 more people who need the hope of a cure for this horrible disease. Parkinson’s disease is the second most common neurological disease in Australia. The most identifiable symptom of Parkinson’s is a tremor or shake, though there are many other motor and non-motor symptoms.

Currently there is no known cure for Parkinson’s, however the not-for-profit organisation, Shake it Up Australia, is aimed at funding vital research into better treatments and ultimately, a cure. This sort of research is very close to our hearts as Claire’s Dad has recently been diagnosed with Early Onset Parkinson’s Disease. This has opened our eyes to what a big impact Parkinson’s has on so many people. It is therefore our desire to show our support for others in the community who are in a similar situation.

This is the exciting part… we have come up with a (slightly crazy) plan so that we can all contribute to making a difference to the lives of people living with Parkinson’s!!

In June we will be flying to China to embark on a journey to one of the Seven Wonders of the World. We will be trekking along a remote region of the Great Wall of China outside Beijing in the Heibei Province for eight days from the 25th June 2017 to the 3rd July 2017.

Our goal is to raise at least $2000 before we leave. All funds raised will go directly to the Shake it Up Australia Foundation so that they can continue their wonderful work! So we are calling out for your support, however big or small, to help us bring Australia one step closer to finding a cure for Parkinson’s!

 

Donations made through this platform are secure and will be remitted directly through to the Shake it Up Australia Foundation. Thanks so much for your support!

    Shake It Up Australia Foundation

    Shake It Up Australia has a clear mission: To find the cure for Parkinson’s There are an estimated 70,000 Australians living with Parkinson’s with another 32 diagnosed every day. 20% of those diagnosed are under 50 years old. With your help we can change this! Shake It Up has partnered with the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research to fund world’s best research in Australia targeted at finding better treatments and ultimately a cure. 100% OF YOUR DONATION GOES DIRECTLY TO RESEARCH.  THAT’S RIGHT 100%!  Our founding directors cover all general expenses of the Foundation ensuring every cent of your donation makes a real difference in the quest to find a cure for Parkinson’s.   About Shake It Up Shake It Up Australia Foundation together with our partner at The Michael J. Fox Foundation are the largest non-government funder of Parkinson's research across multiple insitutes in Australia.   Founded in 2011 we have funded over $2.8M in research targeted at finding better treatments and ultimately the cure. 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 (MJFF) 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 approach MJFF take to assessing, funding and project managing world’s best research all over the globe eliminates redundancy, ensures efficiency and unites the global community in the quest to find a cure. Clyde realised that funding Parkinson’s research was the best thing that he could do to help himself, his family and the 100,000 other Australians living with the disease. With that clear in his mind Clyde founded Shake It Up Australia Foundation (SIUAF) to give other Australians the opportunity to join his quest. How you can join the fight to cure Parkinson’s The research we are funding comes at a cost and we need people committed to making a world without Parkinson’s disease a reality to join our fight. Some ways you can contribute include: •    Donate to research now •    Run an event for Shake It Up •    Participate in an event and encourage others to sponsor you •    Become a project partner •    Become a corporate partner •    Become an ambassador •    Volunteer •    Subscribe to our newsletter •    Register for clinical trials To learn more about how you can be a part of the answer please go to our website and get involved. www.shakeitup.org.au
