We invite you to join us to make a difference in cerebral palsy (CP) by helping to raise funds for CP research through STEPtember. STEPtember is an activity-based peer-to-peer fundraiser that happens throughout the month of September. Donations support us through our strategic partnership with Cerebral Palsy Alliance Research Foundation (CPARF) as they are the leading private funder of CP research in the United States. Participating in STEPtember has multiple benefits:
- You will advance research for CP,
- You will raise awareness about CP,
- You will stay active and be able track your progress.*
We have created a CP Research Network team for STEPtember. You may join our team as an individual or form your own team under the CP Research Network team (you will see these options on our join page). STEPtember comes with an iPhone app to help you monitor and share your activity on social media or with other team members. And while the name includes “step”, you get step credit for any activity including biking, rolling, swimming and lots of other forms of activity and exercise. It’s a great way to enhance your fitness and have challenging fun with friends, family and co-workers.
Registration is now open. Build your team in August and get ready to get more active and start fundraising in September. Get recognized with shirts and jackets for your fundraising achievements! Please join us and help make a difference in CP research!
* We really want to emphasize that even though the name is “STEPtember”, we support more than 80 ways to stay active and transform it into step equivalents to make the opportunity available to people of all abilities.
