Cerebral Palsy Alliance Research Foundation (CPARF) kicks off its fifth annual US-based STEPtember campaign to raise funds and awareness for cerebral palsy research.
A monthlong fully virtual challenge, STEPtember participants are encouraged to get active in ways that work for them wherever they are, with the ultimate goal of reaching the equivalent of 10,000 steps every day this September.
Individuals and teams can sign up to see who can raise the most funds and log the most activity. All abilities are welcome, and more than 60 activities convert to steps.
Last year’s event, fueled by more than 12,000 participants and nearly 150 organizations, brought in almost $1.7 million. CPARF hopes to raise the bar with this year’s event.
Funds raised from STEPtember help support US-based research projects to open up what’s possible for cerebral palsy, from chronic pain treatments to technological advancements revolutionizing communication to precision medicine.
Organizations with employees signed up to step it up include Invesco, Ipsen Biopharmaceuticals, Kirkland & Ellis LLP, QBE, UBS, Weil, Gotshal & Manges LLP, and Omnicom Precision Marketing Group (OPMG).
To join them and others to get moving and move cerebral palsy research forward, visit STEPtember.
