Shake It Up Australia in partnership with The Michael J Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research is committed to providing innovative opportunities to inspire members of the community to be a part of the quest to find the cure for Parkinson’s.
Our Cumberland View Aged Care – Whalley Drive Parkinson’s Support Group, founded by our passionate resident John Lewis supported this great cause with a fundraiser on 4th May. To Shake it up, we held a colourful Milkshake Day. With 6 flavours on offer at $2 each, $308 was raised! Shake It Up proudly states that 100% of every dollar raised goes directly to medical research. This pledge is made possible by their founding directors’ commitment to fund all of the Foundation’s outgoings.
John Lewis is a Parkinson’s sufferer and accordingly has a unique understanding. He provides guidance to our staff on how to treat people with the condition.
