IN 2021, YOU RAISED OVER FOR PEOPLE WITH CEREBRAL PALSY
YOU MOVED TOGETHER FOR CEREBRAL PALSY
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.
STEPtember participants are passionate about being healthy, improving the lives of people with cerebral palsy and building a more inclusive world. Our steppers blew us away with their support and generosity. Without them, this record-breaking campaign would not be possible. They are the heroes of our story!
