For people living with cerebral palsy.

For us it is personal. When my husband Mitch and I welcomed our son Kai into the world in February 2019, it was far from a smooth entrance and as a result of a brain injury caused at birth, Kai was diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy.  Cerebral Palsy ranges from the inability to move a finger, to being bound to a wheelchair. It all stems from an injury or trauma to the brain from the time of birth. What this means for Kai is that he has some issues with movement on his left side.

On a positive note Kai was accepted into an Early Intervention research trial run by the Cerebral Palsy Alliance who provided Kai with intensive physiotherapy and occupational therapy every week at our house until he was 2 years of age.  For first time parents, this time was extremely stressful not knowing what the future held for our baby but having the support of the therapist come to our house and for free was the most amazing help we needed. All of which we found out later was all funded by events and fundraising like this one!!


The help and guidance of Cerebral Palsy Alliance is invaluable so this year Anna, Lily, Krystle and I have put together a team “Kai’s The Limit” and are taking part in ‘STEPtember’ to commit to 10,000 steps per day for all of September to raise vital funds for children and adults living with Cerebral Palsy and to raise awareness for the Cerebral Palsy Alliance and the amazing support they give families like ours. 


Now Kai is out of the trial we still see the Therapist at CPA at the Allambie Heights campus and they continue to support Kai with his ongoing needs. 


 Any amount you contribute would make a huge difference to help such an amazing organisation which is now very close to our hearts, offer support to children and adults living with cerebral palsy and of course encourage us to complete our 10,000 steps per day! No donation is too small!
