Cerebral Palsy Alliance Research Foundation (CPARF) launches its fourth annual STEPtember campaign in the United States to raise funds and awareness for cerebral palsy research.

During the fully virtual challenge, which runs through September 28, participants are encouraged to move in the ways that work for them to reach a total of 10,000 steps a day for 28 straight days.

CPARF aims to raise the bar from last year’s best-ever event, which brought in $1.45 million, fueled by 17,000 participants.

STEPtember is powered by people and by friendly competition — every person and every team signs up to see who can raise the most funds and take the most steps. All abilities are welcome and 60 activities convert to steps, CPARF notes in a media release.

Funds from STEPtember support US-based research projects regarding cerebral palsy, from chronic pain treatments to precision medicine to technological advancements.

A Global Movement

STEPtember is a global fundraising movement that began in Australia a decade ago. In addition to the US and Australia, it will also take place in France, Turkey, and The Netherlands this year.
