Donate & share to show your support


I'm taking part in the Blackmores Sydney Running Festival 2014 and hoping to raise much needed funds for the Shake It Up foundation to find a cure for Parkinson's disease.

 

I write this as my father, who has suffered from the disease for over a decade, is entering the last stages of this horrible disease.
 

So what little I can do, I will do.. and this year I will again be doing the half marathon for dad (and to prove that last year was no fluke!)

 

I’m going to be sweating it out and doing my best to complete a gruelling course over the Harbour Bridge, around Sydney's CBD and finishing at the Opera House steps... 

  

I am honoured to be a part of this amazing race and helping a great cause, and I’d really appreciate your support in this endeavour. 

 

Please dig deep - anything you can do to help makes a difference, and my father and I thank you!

 

Thank you for your support and helping to make a difference!

Keep running, Gary

Shake It Up Australia Foundation

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 is a not-for-profit organisation established in 2011 to promote and fund Parkinson’s disease research in Australia.


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.
