TOGETHER WE HAVE RAISED
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.
