How Your Fundraising Helps

In 2017 participants raised over $653,000 – what an incredible result! Every dollar raised went directly towards providing life changing equipment for children living with cerebral palsy.

We need your support again in 2018 to help us continue to raise funds for essential equipment such as wheelchairs, standing frames, specialised walkers and communication devices.

Your support means children won’t have to wait months for a piece of equipment. Receiving the right equipment at the right time makes such a huge difference to the lives of these children and their families.

‘If your child needs a wheelchair or a walker they need it right away – not in a year’s time.’
Rob White, CEO, Cerebral Palsy Alliance

Your support may help a child:

  • Take their first steps - through the use of a walker
  • Say their first words - using a communication device
  • Sit upright and go on outings with their family - through the use of a wheelchair

Every 15 hours an Australian child is born with cerebral palsy.

The severity of cerebral palsy differs from child to child but almost all children with cerebral palsy will need some form of equipment. This specialised equipment is often very expensive and out of reach for most families.

We believe that no child should have to wait for life changing equipment and thanks to your support we are truly changing children's lives.
