About the Organisation

Organisation Name : Shake It Up Australia Foundation

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 MJFF do to fund medical research targeted at finding better treatments on the path to a cure for Parkinson’s disease. Shake It Up was established based on Clyde’s realisation that funding Parkinson’s research in partnership with MJFF was the best thing that he could do to help himself, his family and the 80,000 other Australians living with the disease. Our mission is clear; to find the cure for Parkinson’s disease.
