Clyde Campbell  AM – Funding Research To Find The Cure For Parkinson’s

Our speaker for this week is Clyde Campbell from Shake It Up.

About Clyde

Clyde is the founder of Shake It Up Australia Foundation and has an entrepreneurial spirit and a vision for the future. Clyde decided not to sit back and wait for the rest of the world to find a cure for Parkinson’s but to join the action. In 2011 he launched Shake It Up Australia Foundation with one mission – to increase awareness and funding in Australia targeted at finding better treatments and ultimately a cure for Parkinson’s.

Clyde also wanted to ensure that 100% of all donations received went to Parkinson’s research. This commitment is made possible by Clyde and his brother Greg funding all the administration and overhead costs of the foundation. Since 2011 the foundation has co-funded over $22 Million into Parkinson’s Research in Australia and are now the leading non-government funder of Parkinson’s research across multiple institutes.

On 26 January 2021, Clyde was appointed as a Member (AM) of the Order of Australia (General Division)  in the Australia Day Honours List, in recognition of his significant service to community health, particularly to people living with Parkinson’s disease.
