Run For Parkinson's

“Giving is not about just making a donation, it’s about making a difference.”

Our founder Mark is taking on the Sydney Marathon this September with a mission to raise $38,000 for Shake It Up Australia, a charity focused on finding a cure for Parkinson’s disease. Mark’s goal represents the 38 Australians diagnosed with Parkinson’s every day, including his father, Hans.

Join us in the fight against Parkinson’s and donate today to help us reach our goal!
