I don’t usually use my blog to promote causes, but this one is a little different, and one I feel passionate about.
This is to let you know that I’m participating in the Run Melbourne 5km event https://runmelbourne2014.everydayhero.com/au/sharon-8 and will be proudly supporting The Shake It Up Australia Foundation to raise funds to find a cure for Parkinson’s disease, in this life time.
Every day 30 people in Australia are diagnosed with Parkinson’s, and as many as 10% of these people are under the age of 40. This disease currently has no known cure, however through investment in research targeted at finding a cure Shake It Up Australia Foundation and their partner The Michael J Fox Foundation For Medical Research offer hope.
Helping to find a cure for Parkinson’s is something very dear to my heart and I’d really appreciate your support to help me reach my fundraising goal for this great cause.
Here are some ways you can personally help me right now
- Make a donation on my fundraising page: https://runmelbourne2014.everydayhero.com/au/sharon-8 – 100% of these donations will go to Parkinson’s research here in Australia and all donations are tax deductible.
- Share my fundraising page with your friends and family
- Look out for regular updates here to keep abreast of my progress.
Thank you for your support. I really do appreciate it,

Well said Sharon, I’m right there with you.
