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 Fundraise 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.
Three Years of Pause 4 Parkinson’s Fundraising. This is our biggest event challenge to date.
How We Got Started
