About Kitty & Stephen
Since my Dad (The Parky Park Runner) was diagnosed with Parkinson’s (4 years ago) there is still no cure.
As a nurse who has looked after Parkinson’s Patients, I know what is to come. No thanks to a degenerative disease, it will only get harder for Stephen. Please help me raise those much-needed research funds to find a cure for Parkinson’s.
This year is the 4th Shake It Up Fund-raise event that I have held. In 2020 I wanted to raise the bar and make a significant donation to SHAKE IT UP AUSTRALIA FOUNDATION, which works together with Michael J Fox Foundation to FIND A CURE FOR PARKINSON DISEASE.
The PAUSE 4 PARKINSONS challenge in 2020, has led to Dad and I together hosting a larger event. Two Cabarita Beach events (a 5k run/walk and a 500m shuffle/walk) along with a local coffee4parkinsons’ pre-event fundraising opportunity in Cabarita Beach, Pottsville Beach and the new Kingscliff.
Thanks for your support, I trust you will all enjoy the run or shuffle and take some time out to think about how you would handle a degenerative disease, and why we must find that cure.
Please follow the link to make a tax-deductible donation that will go to Shake It Up Australia Foundation, where 100% of funds raised go to research.
(please note with effect from 17 March 2020, the 5k/500m beach run/walk/shuffle is replaced by a virtual 5k/500m run/walk/shuffle due to the impact of COVID-19)
