IN 2024, 26 PARTICIPANTS Have RAISED $11
FOR CEREBRAL PALSY RESEARCH AND DISABILITY INNOVATION.

It's Time to Step Up for Cerebral Palsy

There are 1 million people of all ages with cerebral palsy in the US — and 33 more children are diagnosed every day. In fact, CP is the most common life-long physical disability, and it's vastly underfunded.

Join STEPtember, an inclusive, virtual health and well-being fundraising challenge, made possible by Cerebral Palsy Alliance Research Foundation (CPARF).
