The Shake Breakers take on the World's Toughest Mudder
On November 14 your friends Ryan Scott, Chris Bassett, Anthony Collins and Ben Williams will be making the trip to NY in the US to compete as a team in the Worlds Toughest Mudder Championships. If you've never heard of the event I would encourage to watch the following video:
The event is similar to the Tough Mudders we all have had the fun in doing, however harder; More Obstacles, More Mud and continuous for 24hrs in the US winter!
Such a event offers a great amount fulfilment for us just to be part of and it also provides us with an opportunity to use our Fitness and Craziness to benefit the lives of others. For a few personal reasons we have decided to make "Shake it Up" Parkinson's Charity the driving force behind our mission. Please take a moment to check them out;
Here Shake It Up founder, Clyde Campbell, shares a message of support:
WE NEED YOUR HELP!
As the foundations for such an event are being laid, we would like to extend our arm towards all of you and ask for your help. We have set a team goal of raising $100,000 for "Shake it Up". This would provide the charity with a major boost towards being able to make substantial progress in their research for a cure. At this stage we are not asking for donations, instead we would like your knowledge, experience or ideas. We are motivated, committed and will not stop at anything! We will meet our goal and we will go to NY and WIN The Worlds Toughest Mudder!

About Shake It Up
Shake It Up Australia Foundation is a not-for-profit organisation established in 2011 to promote and fund Parkinson’s disease research in Australia.
The Foundation was established by Clyde Campbell, a father of three and business owner who was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease in 2009 at the age of 44.
Clyde set out to find out as much as he could about the disease and determine what he could do in a practical sense to assist. His search led him to the Michael J Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research (MJFF) in the United States and the remarkable work they do to fund medical research targeted at finding better treatments on the path to a cure for Parkinson’s disease.
The approach MJFF take to assessing, funding and project managing world’s best research all over the globe eliminates redundancy, ensures efficiency and unites the global community in the quest to find a cure.
Clyde realised that funding Parkinson’s research was the best thing that he could do to help himself, his family and the 100,000 other Australians living with the disease. With that clear in his mind Clyde founded Shake It Up Australia Foundation (SIUAF) to give other Australians the opportunity to join his quest.
