IN 2019, WE RAISED IN THE US AND ACROSS THE GLOBE
STEP UP FOR CEREBRAL PALSY RESEARCH
Cerebral palsy is the most common childhood-onset physical disability in the world. It’s caused by damage to the developing brain during pregnancy, birth or shortly after birth, and it directly affects a person’s movement and posture for life.
WHAT YOU’RE STEPPING FOR
No matter where you choose to participate from, every step you take and every dollar you raise will help fund the world’s most innovative researchers as they uncover what's possible for cerebral palsy. This STEPtember, let’s stay connected and move together in a fun, safe and virtual environment.
Early Detection and Intervention
Children with CP often aren't diagnosed until they are between a year and half and two years old. We are funding research to give children with CP the best possible start.
Technology & Innovation
25% of people with CP cannot talk. We are partnering with neurologists and funding science that will transform the way people with CP communicate and move. We are also supporting research that will revolutionize CP diagnosis and treatment.
We are funding research to uncover possible genetic components of CP, which will optimize individual treatments for people with CP.
We are funding studies to find the underlying causes of CP-related pain and discover new non-addictive, non-opioid treatments.
