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 home until he was 2 years of age. For first time parents, this time was extremely stressful for us not knowing what the future held for our beautiful baby Kai but having the support of the therapist come to our home and for free was the most amazing help we needed. All of which was funded by events and fundraising challenges like this one!!
The help and guidance of Cerebral Palsy Alliance is invaluable so this year my fabulous besties Allison, Bek and Josh are stepping up for our team "Kai's the Limit" and 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.
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!
