Making every step count


You’re already moving. Now you can make it count for something more — when you connect your movement with our movement.

Every day, we’re working for adults and kids with cerebral palsy. We’re researching ways to manage and treat CP, ways to prevent it, and — ultimately — to cure it.

Science is our engine. But so is hope. And so are you.

Those steps to your car or office. Those hours at the gym or in the pool or at yoga. That stroll with your friends. All that movement counts even more when you join a team a move with STEPtember.

How it works

We’ll meet you where you are. We welcome all abilities — whether you’re already active and want to keep your pace or up your game, or you’re taking your first steps toward being active.
