Founded in 1945, Cerebral Palsy Alliance provides family-centred therapies and care to people living with the condition and their families, including early intervention, specialised assessments, therapy, aids and equipment, hydrotherapy, exercise and sport, and assistance with inclusion in school and the community. They respond to the changing needs of their clients based on the latest research, technology and therapies.
Steptember is Cerebral Palsy Alliance’s leading annual fundraising initiative, raising vital funds to provide equipment and services for people living with cerebral palsy, as well as ground breaking research. Originating in Australia and spreading to nine countries around the world, Steptember challenges the public and workplaces to band together and take the equivalent of 10,000 steps a day as recommended by the World Health Organisation for a healthy life, throughout the month of September. The Goodman Foundation is the exclusive Steptember global partner, supporting Cerebral Palsy Alliance for over 13 years.
Steptember 2016 was extremely successful, with Goodman staff forming part of the 69,281 participants who globally raised more than $6.3 million dollars and together took more than 14 billion steps over 28 days. Read more about Steptember 2016 here
