Join us for STEPtember

There are 1 million people of all ages with cerebral palsy in the US — and 33 more children are diagnosed every day. So let's come together and make the world a more accessible place!

This September, join STEPtember — a community of over 15,000 people who are stepping up to raise funds for cerebral palsy research and disability innovation. No matter how you move, you can change what's possible —  and we can't wait to have you on our team!

If you take the first step,  we'll help you with the rest


The STEPtember Trainers all have cerebral palsy, which is why they're so excited that you're stepping up for cerebral palsy research and disability innovation!

No matter how you choose to move during the challenge, they'll cheer you on as you reach your fundraising and physical activity goals.
