Join the Trek for Parkinson’s: Tuscany 2020 and help Shake It Up find a cure for Parkinson’s.
Shake It Up’s Trek for Parkinson’s: Tuscany 2020 challenge is your chance to discover Tuscany and raise funds for new research into better treatments and, ultimately, a cure for Parkinson’s.
Sound like the adventure for you? Here’s what’s in store…
Rolling hills, olive groves, ancient villages…Tuscany has it all. You’ll experience it up close as you trek for five days along the Via Francigena alongside like-minded teammates and expert local guides. You’ll discover the Tuscan countryside by day and charming medieval towns by night, enjoying traditional local cuisine and the company of your teammates. Making your way through olive groves, undulating woodlands and picture-perfect villages, you’ll finish in Siena, a UNESCO-listed historic village.
Best of all, you’ll be able to say that you’ve funded research that could bring us one step closer to a cure for Parkinson’s. This truly is the adventure-of-a-lifetime.
Every dollar you raise through the Trek for Parkinson’s will be directed to Parkinson’s research in Australia aimed at finding better treatments to slow or stop the progress of Parkinson’s and ultimately a cure for Parkinson’s.
