Help STEP ‘Step it up’ in Steptember
The office here at STEP is buzzing with excitement this month as we embarked on the exciting and challenging journey of Steptember to raise vital funds for Cerebral Palsy Alliance.
Cerebral palsy is the most common physical disability in childhood. One in two people with cerebral palsy are in chronic pain due to the tightening of their muscles and many will never be able to take a single step without assistance. Cerebral palsy doesn’t just affect the individual – it impacts the entire family.
Our challenge is to complete 10,000 steps every day, for the entire month of Steptember and as a team, raise over $5000 for Cerebral Palsy Alliance. This is no easy feat and we are calling from the rooftops for support so that together we can help to make a difference to the everyday lives of people living with Cerebral palsy, and their families.
We have created a little bit of friendly competition in the office to keep our motivation through the roof and we challenge you to join us on our journey to help kids all over the world suffering from Cerebral palsy. Simply choose who you want to support & click on their link below to make your donation.
It doesn’t matter how big or small, any amount that you contribute will make a huge difference to children and adults living with cerebral palsy and of course encourage each of us here at STEP to complete our 10,000 steps per day. If you’re not sure where to start, a donation of $58 could support research actively preventing CP in newborn babies.
When STEP made their donation to Cerebral Palsy Alliance, we received a thankyou letter from Sammy’s mum. ..
“Samantha is a very bubbly, determined, happy person. Whether she’s at home playing, doing therapy or she’s having Botox injections, she’s always got a smile on her face.
When she was about 6 months old her paediatrician gave us the earth shattering news that Sammy had cerebral palsy. Sammy’s cerebral palsy changes how she moves, communicates and interacts with the world. It affects everything she does and it causes her pain.
Walking and talking seemed so far off and we weren’t even sure it would be possible. But little Sammy kept at it and made small improvements every day. After countless sessions of therapy, a brace and walker, Sammy has achieved the greatest goal so far. She is now walking all on her own.
We are so lucky to have Cerebral Palsy Alliance by our side throughout Sammy’s journey. They helped us navigate through the maze of therapy, equipment and treatment. But most importantly, they gave us hope. Hope that with ongoing support and treatment, Sammy would lead a fulfilling and happy life.
Despite the challenges she has endured, Sammy is walking and talking. And as always our darling girl is smiling.
I’m so thankful that you have decided to show the same determination as Sammy by stepping up to the challenge and helping children with cerebral palsy. If Sammy can take just one step, Im confident you will conquer 10, 000 steps a day and just like Sammy, you’ll be smiling.
From the bottom of my heart, thank you!”
Sabrina, Sammy’s mum
As a team, we say a huge THANKYOU for your support and we look forward to completing the challenge!
P.S. You’ll receive an automated receipt as every donation over $2 is tax deductible.
