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 and Pottsville Beach.
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.
P.S. We are also holding a Virtual event (1 Mar to 31 Mar 2020) for those who cannot make the 5 April 2020 Event day.
Everyone is welcome to register for Shuffle 4 Parkinsons. You can run, walk or shuffle the 5k or 500m events. For those who are shuffling please make sure your CARER has registered for FREE to look after you, so we have no falls. If anyone is not well or is struggling, please lookout for an Event Marshall and together return to the finish line to see the Event Coordinator (Kitty) for assistance (there will be no shortage of medical doctors and nurses) and the Event Manager (Stephen) to collect your medallion if ordered. This event is about participation and raising those much-needed funds for Parkinson’s Disease research.
