The Cause

TOGETHER, LET'S RAISE $10 MILLION FOR PEOPLE WITH CEREBRAL PALSY

STEP UP FOR CEREBRAL PALSY

1 - 30 September 2021

Every 20 hours, an Australian child is diagnosed with cerebral palsy.

Cerebral palsy is the most common physical disability in childhood. It’s caused by damage to the developing brain either during pregnancy or shortly after birth – directly affecting 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 supports a wide range of initiatives, helping people living with cerebral palsy to live their best lives. These are just some of the incredible programs we could support with the funds raised during STEPtember 2021.
