The Cause

IN 2021, YOU RAISED OVER $18.6 MILLION FOR PEOPLE WITH CEREBRAL PALSY. LET'S BUILD ON THIS MOMENTUM TOWARDS INCLUSIVITY - ARE YOU IN?

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.
