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

Every step you take and every dollar you raise will help fund the world’s most innovative researchers as they uncover ways to treat, prevent, and ultimately cure CP. Join the movement today.

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.

Genetics

We are funding research to uncover possible genetic components of CP, which will optimize individual treatments for people with CP.

Chronic Pain

We are funding studies to find the underlying causes of CP-related pain and discover new non-addictive, non-opiod treatments.
