STEPtember 2020

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.
