I'm moving CP research forward.
I’m taking part in the STEPtember challenge to raise funds and awareness for cerebral palsy research. I’ll be taking the equivalent of 10,000 steps a day for 28 days from September 1 – 28.
Cerebral palsy (CP) is the most common childhood-onset physical disability in the world. It’s a lifelong condition, and one in 323 babies is diagnosed with CP each year. Estimated related lifetime costs exceed $1.2 million per person.
Your generosity will accelerate groundbreaking research into this underfunded condition, and some of these vital research projects include:
- Training medical teams to detect CP in babies as young as three months old, so they can get timely physical therapy.
- Uncovering new chronic pain treatments and solutions for people with CP.
- Developing technology that will revolutionize communication for the millions of people with CP who can’t speak.
Please help me support this great cause by making a donation. I’ll know you’ve got my back. And that will mean so much to me — and to everyone with CP.
Getting Started02 Sep 2020
Our team has committed to do 10,000 steps a day each, for every day of September! We are aiming to raise money to research and treat Cerebral Palsy.
As well as medical and scientific research, here is just a small sample of the very practical, life changing things your donation can contribute to:
$58 – Will help purchase specially designed toys to assist the learning and development of children with limited motor skills
$135 – Will help customise a wheelchair, providing life-changing independence to a child with CP
$160 – Will fund research to reduce the severity of CP in babies through intensive early intervention
