IN 2021, YOU RAISED OVER FOR PEOPLE WITH CEREBRAL PALSY. LET'S BUILD ON THIS MOMENTUM TOWARDS INCLUSIVITY -
YOU MOVED TOGETHER FOR CEREBRAL PALSY
Every 20 hours, an Australian child is diagnosed with cerebral palsy.
The most common physical disability in childhood, cerebral palsy is caused by damage to the developing brain either during pregnancy or shortly after birth, and directly affects a person’s movement and posture for life.
STEPtember participants are passionate about being healthy, improving the lives of people with cerebral palsy and building a more inclusive world. In 2021 STEPpers went above and beyond with their support and generosity. Without them, this record-breaking fundraising challenge would not be possible.
Are you ready to step up in 2022?
